To my dear Colton family, Georgia, Mike and Carla. I am so sorry for the great loss of John. He will always be remembered as a kind and fun loving brother in law to me and uncle to my daughter. May your memories cause you to smile often in the difficult days ahead until you meet again. I came across this Scripture recently and I think that it is very fitting for this situation. "May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father...comfort your hearts and strengthen you" (2 Thess). 2:16,17). You all are forever in my heart, because you are such a big part of my past, present and future. Wishing you peace. love, Carolyn Colton Collier

I would like to express my deepest and heartfelt condolences to the family of John Colton. I am truly sorry for the lost that your family is feeling. Experiencing the lost of a beloved family member is one of the hardest thing that any of us can go thru. And because of that my thoughts and prayers are with your family. Take comfort in knowing that God never intent for us to deal with sickness or death. But have assurance in this wonderful promise that God holds out to us. But have assurance in this wonderful promise that God holds out to us. He promise us that very soon he is going to reunite us back with all those loved ones we have lost. (John 5:28,29) Until that time, cherish all the wonderful memories that you have of Mr. John. These precious memories will console the family in the day's ahead.
