    Condolences to Jeffrey, Chris, Teile and the entire Bostic and Hoyte family. I will definitely miss Colleen’s beautiful voice every morning when she wakes me up with her singing.. Colleen was really a nice person to be around. May her soul RIP and RIG. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy will come in the morning. May God comfort all of you during this difficult time.
