Colleen, one of our matriarchs, died on Monday. She'd had a stroke a few weeks ago and was improving...then a seizure...then this.
The Requiem will be next Tuesday evening. Tonight the choir rehearsed Rutter's "Lux Aeterna" and an "Ave Maria" we know well for the service.
Another soprano said she had promised Colleen that she would wear red high heels at her funeral...we are all invited to join in.
Colleen "talked my ear off" on the first day I visited the church. I was so grateful for it! feeling very lost. She never met a stranger. I suppose she is telling them in Paradise just how the cow ate the cabbage.
Rest well, friend.
