    Grammy, I didn’t get a chance
    to tell you goodbye.
    God took you very suddenly,
    sadly, I don’t know why.

    Your pictures and our memories are my keepsake, with which I’ll never part.
    God has you in his keeping;
    I have you in my heart.

    Grant, Jason, Garrett and family;

    I was completely shocked and so very saddened to hear of Colleen’s passing.

    I cannot express the pleasure I had working with Colleen at SelecTrucks and the bond that we shared as hockey Moms; all the trials, tribulations and triumphs over the years we shared together! Her vibrant personality, smiles and laughter will be missed dearly!

    My heart is with you, both as a spouse who has lost the other half, and
    as a parent of sons who have lost the stability of the person who “held things together”.

    My prayers are with you at this time, when no words can erase the pain of grieving….

    God be with you,
    Ruth, Matthew and Jonathan Yesmaniski
