Colleen, you were such a kind lady and I’m glad I got to know you. No matter how many times your health deteriorated and whatever obstacles life threw at you, you always defied the odds and pulled through and overcome the obstacles each time. I can’t believe that no matter how many times over the last couple of years we thought you were going to pass away, you again and again surprised us all and pulled through and just kept on fighting each battle you faced, but this time you sadly weren’t able to win the fight and yesterday, after a few years of fighting, you took your final breath and went to heaven. I’m going to miss you and the giggles we used to have whenever I saw you. I’ll always remember your fighting spirit and it’s something that I admired about you. Rest in peace.
Dearest colleen seeing the smile on your face when we went on our holidays was magical. I am so glad I got to meet you and become a special friend. You will be forever in my heart and prayers. I won’t forget you dear lovely lady.
My sincere condolences to Greg with the passing of Colleen. Your beautiful smile and positive outlook Colleen, despite ongoing health struggles, will always be remembered.
It’s been a privilege transporting both you and Greg over the years to many doctor and hospital appointments early in the piece with Red Cross Patient Transport Service, later coming under the banner of Castlemaine Health.
Rest in Peace Colleen.
Colleen was a pleasure to know. She would always greet me with a smile of welcome and ask how I was in spite of all that she was having to bear herself. Colleen bravely fought on and proved the doctors wrong on many occasions due to her strong spirit and will to live and remain at Greg’s side as long as she could. I will always remember her smiles and laughter and her strength. Heartfelt wishes to Greg at this sad time.
Your cheeky smile,
Your infectious laugh,
Your ever pleasant attitude,
Your tenacious fight,
Your bubbly personality,
Your sparkling eyes,
We will miss them all.
Condolences to Greg.
