  1. My favorite memory of Colleen will be of her on the back of her little horse, Fleury. She will be riding around the indoor at Pople Ridge Farm and she will be laughing as she flies over the jumps. She will be joking with every other person in the lesson and and making the lesson even more fun just by her presence.

    Colleen was definitely one in a million and although I haven’t spent much time with her for many years , she is someone I will never forget. I was blessed to have known her and she brought joy into my life.

  2. Colleen will be missed so much. To know her was to love her.She touched so many people in so many ways. To her family at home and at dmv she is still watching over you and comforting you in your time of need as she always did. She was the most amazing woman. I will never forget her and how positive she was no matter what which was always difficult for me to understand but she was an inspiration.
