I was a teenager when Colleen was born. I was thrilled to be an aunt for the first time and loved that little girl so much. I remember so many years when we were together for just fun or family celebrations. I wish we could have remained close over the years and I feel sad for that time lost. My deepest sympathy is with her family and friends. I will keep you in my prayers.

Those we hold closest to our hearts never truly leave us for it is the memories of our times spent together that help us get though each day you are not with us. Remembering Colleen...her smile....her humor.....her welcoming ways.....will always and forever be cherished but the ache within our hearts will never go away. Chris, Ilir, Artan, and I mourn the loss of our good friend Colleen. May you await us with open arms when it is our time to see the light. Love you and miss you dear friend.

Colleen was my first niece & when she was a toddler,whenever I would stop by she would ask me if I had any pennies, so before I would go over to her house I would make sure I had pennies to give her. She grew into a beautiful young woman. My heartfelt condolences go out to Pete & Hanna. She will be missed.

I had the pleasure of working with and for Colleen over at 676 N. St. Clair. I was outsourced by Pitney Bowes to be the receptionist on the 11th floor and I also worked in the office services department as well. She was a bit tough at first, but once I got to know her, she was an awesome and sweet person. She was the type of person who knew her job and didn't play when it came down

My deepest sympathies and condolences go out to her family. Colleen was very dedicated to her work and always tried to do what was best for the company. She loved to share stories about her personal life as well. She is very proud of Hanna and would share updated photo and stories. She will be missed.

Dear Pete and Hannah,

Although you don't know me, I knew Colleen and feel like I have been a part of your life while listening to her talk about you both. She always called Pete, "the Man", so I will say it was difficult to remember your name at first. Hannah, your Mom spoke so proudly of you and all of your wonderful accomplishments. She said you were in Nursing School now and that she could not be more excited for
