Kelly Fantham

As the eldest child in our fractured family, Colleen became a leader when it all unraveled. Strong-willed and determined she found her own path. She rarely complained even though she suffered many losses and tough challenges. Her heart was in the right place as she tried to do the best/right thing. Good on ya, Colleen!! I will miss you. Gone too soon.
My thoughts are with Brian, Chris and Jesse.

Joni Pennington

So very sad to hear of my Sister’s passing. She was such a big part of my early childhood, always someone to look up to and admire. I always thought she was so glamorous and cool…
Even though I saw her rarely…it was enough to know she was there.
I will miss her…hugs to Chris, Jesse and Brian.
Wish I could be there with you to send her off…but know I am there in spirit xo
