To Colleen's Family. You have my deepest sympathy in her passing. Growing up we were across the street neighbors on East Main Street. Then Colleen and I worked together back in 1966 at the DOMTAR Powdered Metal Plant on Route 949.She was a very special person and will be greatly missed. Sending love and prayers.
