Family, I am so saddened to hear of Ethel “Colleen” passing. My last visit to Chattanooga was spent with Colleen and my other first cousins whom I hadn’t seen in some time and those hours were very precious to me. RIH, Colleen and to my family my prayers are with you and may God give you comfort. Love you all!
