  10. Col, your loss will be felt for quite some time. You always were an amazing support and your advice and knowledge by far immeasurable. Know that both of us will always look back on the good times and all that banter with a smile. Your strength and courage inspiring, but we think you were taken way too soon, friend.

    To Jenny, Emily, Maddie, Ti (and Layla) our thoughts are with you, sending love to you all. He will be watching over you no doubt.

  11. Col, you were a great leader, friend of many & tirelessly committed to everything that you did, whether it was work, family or your golf. You fought a courageous & inspirational battle, fighting to the very end without ever a complaint, rather showing empathy & support to the needs of others, as you always did through life. You were taken far to early with so much more to offer. You will be sorely missed by many that have had the pleasure of knowing and working with you. May you now Rest In Peace my dear friend, free of pain & suffering. You truly are a legend.
    Our sincere condolences to Jen, Emily, Maddi, Ti (Tierney) where our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
    Rob & Julie Sweeney.
