Monday, May 01, 2017

Always willing to sacrifice himself, he sought out others who needed a laugh or some reassurance. Colin loved making pinewood derby cars with his Dad and earned the Star rank in Boy Scouts. He grew to like working in the yard with his Mom. Fishing was a hobby he enjoyed so long as the fish went free uninjured. Last October he happily confirmed his baptism. Recently he earned a school letter in Fitness Center. Colin had many plans for the future.Colin will continue to be dearly missed by his father Larry, mother Tamara, his big sisters Elizabeth and Sarah, Grandma Kathleen Morrissey, Gramma Judy DeMott, aunts, uncles, cousins, classmates, friends, teachers, community members, and so many more people than he could ever have realized. There is no room for whys, blame, or regrets; just random acts of Colin (silliness and love). We must all go forward and live. The seeds of love Colin planted will continue to grow. All who might find healing and closure are welcome to attend services. Service Thursday, April 27, 2017, 11:00 A.M. at SHEPHERD OF THE VALLEY LUTHERAN CHURCH, 14107 Hudson Road South, Afton.

There are no right (or wrong) words anyway.Attire need not be formal or black. Given the option, Colin would wear shorts and a screen printed T-shirt (preferably green) any day of the week.Do not bring whys – there are no answers.Do not seek blame – there is nothing and no one to attach it to.Do not have regrets – Colin would never want anyone to feel bad.Tears and sorrow are welcome; but so are laughter, jokes, joy, and especially group hugs. Colin loved to be in the middle of a group hug.Instead of flowers, please make a contribution to either Boy Scout Troop 9226 or SAVE-Suicide Awareness Voices of Education.Suicide is the second-leading cause of death for Minnesota teenagers.
