Colleen was my aunt. She was my dad Harold’s sister. My family traveled a lot so we never lived right in Portland with the rest of the fox clan. But I am glad that as I became an adult I got to know my grandma stark and my aunt colleen better. I know you are with your parents and brothers in heaven and probably playing endless games of cards. Win one for me. Love you forever. Kris Fox brown
