I have not seen your precious girl since you left Colorado but I would recognize that beautiful smile anywhere. This is Marty, Patty Klauck’s sister in law. I have thought of you both, Sue and Colburn, so often since Patty told me of Tori’s passing. My heart breaks for you. I have such fond memories of Tori at Rainbow Tree and over at Grammy’s. She had such a calm presence about her. And that beautiful hair — just like her momma’s. I will keep you all in my prayers. Most sincerely. Marty

Hold tight to the memories you have of Tori, as we sure will, and I hope they bring you some comfort during these unfathomable times. Our family has many great memories of sweet Tori like carrying little Chad around almost as her own, the Little Eagles pom and cheer performances, the time on the court during Little Dribblers basketball and volleyball, camping, and just the fun and silliness that Tori could generate with her singing, dancing, and playing dress-up among so many others. Someone as special as Tori will never be forgotten. Sue and Colburn - our hearts and prayers are with you always.
Love from Sue, Mike, Katie, Chad, and Steven Croell

Dear Sue and Colburn, What a beautiful daughter you raised. I have many memories of Tori, Kylie and Annie having so much fun as they played dress-up, birthday parties and baking with Grammy. Tori always had a smile on her face. Following Tori on facebook these last few years, it is very evident that she enjoyed her friends, college and her life. She made a difference in so many lives. Be proud of the wonderful person she became. I love you both very much.

A GARDEN PATH was sent by The Kallas Family.

Kolburn and Sue, You are in our thoughts and prayers today as you honor your beautiful, sweet, daughter. We won’t ever forget her contagious smile and laughter would light up the room. Her enthusiasm for life and her sneaky surprise visits for Maria’s sixteenth birthday and homecoming will forever be engraved in our hearts. We were so blessed to get to have her stay with us over that Thanksgiving break. Not only was she Maria’s best friend but a sister to both Gavin and Natalie. We loved watching the kids interact! What a very special girl you were blessed with and what wonderful loving parents she was blessed with! We love you all! The Kallas family
