“Many people need desperately to receive this message-‘I feel and think as much as you do, care about many things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone.’”
– Kurt Vonnegut
Although Colleen battled addiction, she never stopped caring about those around her. She constantly thought of her two sisters, talked about her daughter to anyone who would listen, and made friends wherever she went. Even while she fought her own battles, she wanted to help others who spend their lives fighting too.
