It's Too Cold Outside...........For Angels To Fly.

No matter how hard I tried, I found it impossible to write this message so please watch the clip.

Thank you for caring


I wanted to decline payment for this post, but on second thought I think Tim is going to need all the help he can get so every penny from this post will go straight to him.


Oooh Mark...I am so sorry for this terrible loss and that Colette did not make it home to be able to be with loved ones. No words can help heal this pain you are all feeling, just know that I am crying with you. Thank you for sharing this news with us, I know it must have been such a hard video to make. :'( :'( :'( Please keep us informed on how we can help the family get through this with some ease and peace.

Thank you Lyndsay!

One thing I am sure of is that Tim will get the support he needs!

Colette had so many people helping and supporting her and I believe now we will all focus our time and love on Tim & Zebadee to help them make it through these tough times!

Thanks for caring @lyndsaybowes!

Really sorry .. Do not be sad and give up
This is life
Be sure ..God will not oppress anyone
Thanks for sharing

Sorry to hear. I remember when I tried to save a man in student life by fundraising but he passed away without treatment and we gave the fund to his family. We all have prayers for her next life. We all have to pass away. We all have to leave the earth. But everyone wants to live better way, with better healthcare.
Thank for helping her husband. Hope they can recover some of financial difficulties and will find a long term support . If someone have power to make you smile, she has power to make you cry. Colette made us cry with her lovely smiles. I am sending a little support for Tim as valentine gift. I trust you will accept and give my hug as love.

I am so very sorry the loss of your friend. I’m lifting prayers up for all of her family and friends. I can’t imagine how hard this is and will be for Tim and their family. You are a good friend Mark and your efforts didn’t go to waste. I’m glad to hear she did get a little better and was able to be with her family a little longer.

God Bless you all~ ❤️

Thank you for your prayers @crosheille!

I know she can still feel the love!

today we gathered in the Temple that she loved, we reminisced and felt her love surround us. Beautiful Colette you filled our lives with love, thank you so much, I carry you with me everywhere I go.

Wow! You are all beautiful and I know she feels you!

We'll be back in a week, ready for when Tim gets back! See you soon!

Chin up!

So sorry to hear this sad ending to the story, after there was so much hope. What you did for Colette (and Tim) was amazing, and she definitely knew how much people cared and rooted for her to get better. Prayers and healing light to Tim, and to you and your family.

Bright Blessings!

Thank you @whitelightxpress!

I appreciate this very thoughtful comment, it really helps.

While you could not save her life, maybe it can be a consolation for you to know that, with your initiative and the love and support of the steemit community you helped nevertheless. No good deed goes unrecorded and improves the morphogenetic field of goodness.

Thank you for this thoughtful comment @likedeeler!

You are very kind!

So sorry to hear this, Mark. God bless you. So sorry for your tremendous loss, Tim. Love from Japan.

Thank you @kafkanarchy84!

Feeling the love!

I am sorry for your loss, Mark. Try to stay strong. The coming days will be difficult for her family and they will need all the support they can get. Upvoted 100% and resteemed.

aww @markwhittam I'm so so sorry for you and your family and of course for Colette's family. I unfortunately know the toll cancer takes on the living and the sense of relief that comes when someone you love so much is no longer in pain. It of course does nothing to relieve the pain of those living now, and for that I'm unbelievably saddened. I'm sending lots of hugs and love to all; you're in my thoughts.

That's heartbreaking, I'm so sorry. My heart goes out to Tim and all of you. Nothing can replace her soul not being in this world any more, but I hope a little financial help will make things a little bit easier.

I am sorry to learn this. I can see your torment and distress on the video. We will appeal to God for you and your family and furthermore for Tim and his kid that will now need to figure out how to go ahead without her.
May all of you discover peace in this hard time.may God bless you,my best wishes are with you,stay happy [email protected]

So, so, so, sorry to hear this Mark. Just know you did what you could and I would gander you made her last few months here a blessing that she really cherished and appreciated. I can feel your sadness through the video and I'm tearing up a bit because of it. Like you said, no more pain and she's at peace. Thanks for the update and God bless you and Colette's family.

Thank you! I appreciate your kind words, a lot!

thank you mark

So Nice of you @markwhittam
you are adorable & doing great for the community
Helping one person might not change the whole world, but it could Change the world for one person
Stay Blessed and GOD will give you the reward for this. . .
Upvoted and resteemed, I wish I could help more

Your generosity is just outstanding

I wanted to decline payment for this post, but on second thought I think Tim is going to need all the help he can get so every penny from this post will go straight to him.

This is great of you as the cash out will be useful to him.

Thank you @samiwhyte

Thank you sir, I'm privilege to receive a reply from you sir.

I am so sorry to hear this. I can see your pain and grief on the video. We will be praying for you and your family and also for Tim and his child that will now have to find a way to go on without her.
May you all find peace in this hard time.

Thank you Staffan!
Colette had such huge support from so many people, which I'm sure will be passed on to Tim now.

Thanks for your prayers!

it means a lot to me being a part of this community, so many times I have turned to steemit in times of hardship, and every time I am blown away at the response!


I will help with what I can. Resteeming so more people know of this and can help Tim. I am sorry for your loss. Cancer is a tough battle. A fight we know well in my family. I understand what you and her family are going through.

There isn't anything I can say to relieve the pain from a comment... So I have resteemed it in the hopes the community can help her family.

Take care
Be good to yourself
She would want you living life to the fullest

So saddened by the loss of your friend Colette. She is Indeed smiling down on you and her loved ones. Thanks for all you do for our community. 🐓🐓

I'm so sorry Mark, it's tragic to lose a life so early, especially those babies who will be missing their mama.

I hope this post can help Tim with the expenses, my heart goes out to all of you.

Hi @markwhittam, I accidentally posted my reply to you when I was logged in as @newbieresteemday a few days ago here(if you scroll down you'll see my comment); and although I'm sure the entire newbie team feels this way, I just needed to pass on my condolences to you personally. You have been so supportive to Brian and I, and I can just feel your pain in the video. Sending lots of love your way.

Beautiful. Girls beautiful post.
