ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of my son, Michael John Colleran, 35 years old, born on February 5, 1985, and passed away on December 17, 2020.  You are missed so much, life will never be the same.  Memories of you are constantly running down my face.  We will remember you forever.

Dear Cathy,
There are no words, but there is love, and you have had him and loved him and he knows he was loved. 

Lots of love, Lynne

One of my favorite memories of Mike, was when I was little and we were playing karaoke on an old video game system in my grandparent’s basement. We were singing “Yellow Submarine” by the Beatles and everyone time the chorus would come on, Mike would ad lib and improvise by saying “Not brown!” I can’t listen to that song without hearing Mike singing along and enthusiastically adding “Not brown!” in my head and for that I’m very grateful

Even though I was younger than Mike, he never thought he was too cool to hang out with his little cousins, he always had the biggest heart and the most fun and larger than life personality. This story personifies Mike so well for me, always the life of the party - we were always entertained. Miss you always

It is so unbelievably difficult to lose a dear one unexpectedly, when they have so much more to do and give. This is a lovely way to give Michael's friends and family an opportunity to share their grief at his passing. I didn't know him, but I know he was blessed to have had such a bright light for his mom. I'm lucky to have had our paths cross in life, Cathy, and I am so sorry for your difficult loss.

Dear Cathy,
Thank you for inviting me to this site. You have such a beautiful family and you are a beautiful person. From the pictures I can see that Michael was a joyful man. I never got to meet him, but I do know that he was blessed with a wonderful mother. I hope you take comfort from that.
Love, Nicki

Cathy and Ron,
We are grateful to have known Michael and were honored to have been with you for Michael and Nicolo’s wedding. What a great time and a wonderful celebration. I’m sorry that Michael had to leave us so suddenly as there was so much for him to do. There is a void where there should be happiness.
We will miss Michael terribly.
Love, Michael and Eileen

Mike,

Words really can’t begin to describe how I feel without you here.

I miss you every day.

There is just so much I wish I could tell you or talk to you about. I still can’t believe that you are gone; I miss you terribly.

Love you big guy.
