I never knew Colleen, however I have had the opportunity to know her son Dewey. Colleen I can say raised one hard working, polite, and successful son. I have considered Dewey a true friend and is like a little brother to me. I am very sorry for the lose, however I know Colleen is looking down knowing her family is going to celebrate her life and continue on with family traditions and lessons taught.
