  1. I was so saddened to hear of Colette’s death. We were roommates at Cal while we were both attending there, in Bennett Manor, the old Victorian rooming house. She was such a delight to be with, sharing her “joy de vivre” with all. Her sense of style was an inspiration to the rest of us. She exuded such confidence and always attracted lots of admirers with her stunning beauty. I always have treasured her friendship over the years, although visits were spaced by years. Our last conversation was one year ago. She told me she had been ill, but I did not sense that it was terminal. She was a very special person and friend that I will miss very very much.

  2. Dear Cousins: Teresa and I were so sorry to hear of Colette’s death. Our condolences to all of our family. Tom Quinn 4700 Eva Pl Plano, Tx 75093
