I miss you mom. Everyday I regret the time I didn’t spend with you when I had the chance. I had even forgotten how much you held what’s left of this little family together and happy. You definitely deserved way better, and we will never forget you. Until my dying days mom you’ll be in my heart. Rest easy.  Love Brook, Brittany, Maysi joe, Sabre, Brittany and Bron.

I worked with Colleen when we were teenagers at the shoe store. She was young and determined. She became the manager at the shoe store when she was just 20 years old. She had a lot of responsibility and she was so determined to take care of her baby and be successful in her career. I didn’t know it then but I do know now how extraordinary she was. We had a lot of fun together. There were many laughs and celebrations that we shared together. I remember when she bought the Corvette. The cars were on display in the mall and she was quite taken with the gold Corvette. She was so excited and proud when she bought it. We laughed about how ridiculous a car it was for a mom with a little girl. But she made it work. After I went away to university, we kept in touch for a years. I remember her talking about the impending wedding to the love of her life. I was surprised when it was put on hold but it made sense, buying a house and securing a future for the big family she hoped to have was a priority. She wanted lots of kids and was so excited when that came to reality. 
I admired your mom, she set goals and made them happen. I know that things changed over the years but that is how I remember her. Take care of yourselves, you are stronger together and always remember the good times. 
My condolences to all of you.

Colleen was a beautiful person & a devoted mother. Our son Michael went to school with her boys. Michael & Her son Brock were best buddies.Michael loved hanging out at
their house & having sleep overs. Colleen spoiled the boys, cooking anything they wanted. It was hard to get Mike home as he always had never ending fun… God bless you Coleen you are so missed.

I will always love and miss you my baby sister, you had a heart of gold for everyone and so much love and caring for others. I know you will always be with me forever and your spirit will always shine❤️❤️

From: Brittany Nicole Phillips

I miss you Mama. you are the first thing on my mind when I wake up, and the last when I fall asleep. You are still apart of my everyday life, just in a much different way. You are all the proof I ever needed that angels exist. You were my best friend, and to this day, no one has lived up to your place in my heart. I honestly dont know how I have made it this long without you. I miss you endlessly, everyday. I know you’re safe and healthy in Heaven, and that is all that gets me through the day. Rest in peace my best friend, other half, guardian angel. I love you.

From: Melanie

It’s difficult to write a memorial to my aunt Colleen. There are so many memories of her around us. My son Denzell sleeps with a blanket every night which Colleen bought. My mom treasures a special birthday card Colleen sent last year.

Colleen was kind and generous to people who she loved. It’s heartbreaking to me that she is gone. 

There is emptiness without her, but I will hold on to the memories and things that make me feel close to her to remind me of all the love she brought into our lives.
