My condolences to Colette's family, and everyone who has been blessed to know her. I've known Colette since I was about five years old as an elementary student at Sequoia and a kid at 4th'R.' Like many of us former 4th'R' kids, I was one who came back when I turned 18 to work at 4th'R.' I can definitely say that Colette was every reason why I wanted to go back to Sequoia and work with kids at that time. Colette taught me so much about working with school-aged children, and being a strong woman. Colette's influence on the community, the many children, and young adults she treated like family is especially remarkable. Thank you and God bless you, Colette! I love you.
