So sorry that you had to leave this world at such a young age. You were my brother in law for 35 years and I saw you grow up while I dated your brother. You grew into a fine man that loved his daughter more than anything in this world. Now you are with the rest of your siblings Donna, Steve and Tim. All of you gone within 5 years so sad. May the dear Lord give you peace now and tell Steve I said Hi and that I will always love him along with all of you kids. I will always be here for Colleen.

Colen-aslong as we knew you- you always brought a smile to our faces with your sense of humor. I don't understand but we will remember all the good memories you left us with. RIP Colen
