Bob and family. Please except my heart felt condolences to you and your family. I was fortunate to have been a part of Colleens life and Bobs. The first conversation I had I knew we were going to get along just fine. She reminded me of myself and her husband and her jokes were much of my life with my husband Joe who also was a down eastern. I was glad I got to go and fix her hair and give her a hair style before her passing. She certainly had some fun things to tell me then. With her struggle to breathe and walk we managed to make her look beautiful. I am forever great full to have met you. RIP and breathe graceful my dear friend you will be missed. Barb your stylist and friend.❤️

Barb on behalf of the family I'd like thank you so much for the service you provided for Colleen. You made her feel like a million dollars that day, and thus made us feel so grateful at seeing her lovely smile and I was so glad we took the picture that you see here in her obituary. Again many thanks for that and your kind words.
