It is with saddened heart that I inform y’all that Colleen Kopfman had an accident on the 8th of July and is no longer with us. I will give you details in our other means of communications and an address for Don if you wish to express your sympathy to him.

Words cannot express our loss of such a fun-loving RVMutant.

Dear Don,

Marcia and I send our deepest sympathies to you and your family at this tender time. We loved Colleen so much, and cherish the friendship that came so easily, we will miss her laughter so very much.

Love Ya ,
Jeff & Marcia

I'm in shock! It’s because of Colleen that I ALWAYS wear my seat belt when driving. Some years ago she lost a good friend in a traffic accident because he wasn’t wearing his. When we discussed it I promised her I would always wear mine.

Colleen you will be missed. Don please know how much we all feel your loss.

Oh my gosh! Don, we are sorry & sad to hear about Colleen. She was a true mutant. She loved a good time and had a heart of gold. Our prayers are with you at this time. She will be truly missed by all of us. May the Lord be with you at this tough time.

This afternoon we had a visit from the Mooses! It was a good visit other than being interrupted by our RE agent. We laughed about not selling fast enough to avoid them. Pictures to follow when Dennis gets home!

We may have to share it. If we get to cross the border we will call pepper and see what arrangements we can make at that time.

Colleen Kopfman

I will always treasure our recently departed Mutant for a number of reasons. The day we met she ran up to me, flung her arms around my neck, smooched me on the lips and said, "That's to make you fall in love with me." Yaknow something it worked.

Irene and I will always regret we couldn't convince Colleen to come out to play when we passed through Vegas the last couple of times.

The silly costume parties we all participated in were mostly her doing.

The laughs we all had at the great mooning were mostly her fault.

Colleen, Irene and I will always love you and miss your great laugh and will look forward to seeing you in an afterlife if one actually exists. Rest in Peace lovely lady.
