  1. Rod, Karyl, and family,
    I was with Kolleen at your home in 2012 and part of 2013. I enjoyed spending time with her; watching movies, talking about the ‘trinkets’ she had in her room, and her time at school. I was saddened to hear of her passing, but I know she is happy and watching over all of you.

  2. Rod and Karyl, We are very sad at the passing of Kolleen. We were sorry we missed your service, but be known our prayers are with you all. We miss our visits and talks to you both.

  9. Kolleen was very special to me. We spent a lot of time together at night watching Hallmark movies. She seemed like another daughter to me and we got along very well. I missed those nights long after she moved. I have thought about her a lot and wished I could have visited her more than what I did. I will never forget the times we had. God Bless her.

  10. Kolleen was one of “my” very special little girls! Her beautiful smile and bubbly personality will always hold a place in my heart. She was blessed to be a part of such a wonderful,caring family !
