Sally, Jim and Family: Sorry we missed Colleen's celebration of life; a life that touched our family for close to 50 years. I have nothing but the fondest memories of Colleen growing up in a family full of love and laughter. She is in very good hands now; no doubt my parents were in the front of the line welcoming her into God's house.
Jim, I hope to see you at the Relay again this year. As I do my laps, Colleen will be in my thoughts.
Take care and may God bless all of you!

Mrs. Horner, you were one of the best teachers I ever had. You made school amazing and inspired every student that you came across. I will never forget all of the effort tht you put into every thing that you did. I will never forget you.

Dear Jim and family,
we were so sorry to hear of Colleen's passing. She was so full of life and was quick to share her passion with those around her. I fondly remember our chats at North Oshawa arena as our children skated there.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this difficult time. As you know, we truly do understand what a difficult time this is.
