There are no words . . . .

Dear Friends and Family,

With a heavy heart Shawn and I would like you to be aware of a tragic situation that has happened to our family.

On Monday, March 7th, I went into preterm labor and early Tuesday, March 8th, our twins Mary and Christopher Colley were born. Being only 23 weeks, they peacefully passed away shortly after they arrived. In that short time, we were able to hold them, have them baptized and love them unconditionally.

We are coping with this as best as we can at this time. The overwhelming support we have been receiving from our family and friends have definitely helped us more that we can express.

In lieu of flowers, we have chosen to have donations made to the March of Dimes. We also plan on participating in the upcoming March of Dimes March for Babies Walk, held on May 1st here in Columbus. We feel this will be a great way for our family and friends to celebrate the memory of Mary and Christopher as well as supporting the thousands of babies born too small and too soon. We have set up a team page where you can make a donation and support Team Colley.
