"Fiandaca family I'm sorry for your loss. Colleen has been in my life since we meet in kindergarten. Colleen has been my best friend since. She was always kind and caring from the beginning. Colleen will always be in my heart. Rest in Peace Colleen ."
"Colleen was six years old when I first met her. She was a ball of wild energy with a mischievous smile and actions to match. She liked to cuddle and had a creative imagination. Growing up the youngest of six children was not easy, it gave her a understanding of compassion and courage. Knowing when to "duck" was just as important as knowing when to help. She loved her family.
Those qualities love, compassion and courage flourished, thru her life as a daughter, a sibling, a wife, a mother and grandmother she spread love and was the consummate caregiver. The love and tender care she gave to others was returned to her. The Fiandaca family is her living legacy. God Bless you all.........
"So sorry for your loss. "
