    Your sweet little Angel made me smile everytime I saw her. She would come in where I work and go to the old music I was playing and dance like there was no tomorrow. This breaks my heart and I will never forget your little Angel. You have my deepest sympathy. May the good Lord grant you peace and strength. Hugs and love to your family.

    We only had the the pleasure of meeting Colleen once but I’m so glad we did. It was evident how much you both loved teaching and doing everything you could with her. I will remember Colleen as one of the sweetest and most intelligent girls I’ve ever met, and that is because of the work you did as parents. I’ve never been a religious person in my life but last night I prayed for your strength. We love you Jack and Krissy.
