We just heard about Colleen when we asked about her at the Princess Maria. We have known her for many years as patrons of the diner. We loved visiting with her and catching up on the new additions in the family along the way. We were very taken aback to hear she passed last week while we were up in northern Jersey for the holidays. We will miss her smiling face, her pure joy when she shared photos of the family and the stories of the little ones. Rest in peace my dear, until we meet again. You were truly a wonderful, caring person and were an honor to know in our lifetime.
