total hearts received for Moments That Survive

Colin C. Brough

In honor of Colin C. Brough

My story began early the morning of Friday, October 9, 2015. I received at call at 7:00 a.m. that my nephew Colin had been shot and killed by a fellow student on the Northern Arizona University campus. I immediately fell to my knees, my heart shattered beyond repair. Our lives were forever changed at that moment.

Colin was a son, brother, cousin, nephew, grandson and friend. He was full of light, laughter, joy and kindness. He was loving and caring. His smile was contagious and would light up any room he entered.

It is extremely hard to put into words the pain, anger and loss I feel. To this day, I ask myself: Why? I know I will never get that answer. Not a day goes by that I do not think of him. We carry him with us in our everyday lives.

Colin Brough will forever be loved, forever in our hearts and forever missed.
