I did not know Colby for long; only a year or two. But I can still see his smile and hear his goofy laugh. Every day when he came into work he told me Hey Miss Kat. I remember one night when a bunch of us were hanging out playing Rockband and Colby started dancing around to the music. Luckily I took a video. It was the first thing I looked for when I heard the news. I just wanted to see my friend happy. And thats how Ill always remember him. Happy, smiling like a goof, and grooving to the music.

Colby thanks for being a wonderful part of our life for 5 years you are always like a son to us, during that time you always brought a spot to our face and a loving heart you always treated us with respect and we enjoyed having you in our lives. We were so glad you took our snugs as a baby and made him a good Papa and gave him lots of love. Walk with Jesus. We love you Colby. Mark & Shari Harrison

What a blessing to have gotten to meet this young man and to know how he loved Jesus and everyone he met.

Colby always wanted to make everyone else smile. His smile was so infectious. My heart hurts to find out he was hurting so much inside. My thoughts are with his family and friends and I hope they can take solace in the fact that he is no longer hurting or fighting his demons.
