  1. What a beautiful tribute to a warm and loving lady. I’ve known Colleen’s mother my whole life, and I can’t think of a kinder person. She always had a nice word to say about everyone, and made incredible lady locks! She also created a family, that survives her, that carries on her spirit of warmth, kindness, and inclusion. My heartfelt sympathy goes to Colleen, John, and Rod, and their families. I’m sorry that during this time of social distancing I can’t be with you, but my heart will be there. Fondly, Brett
