He was a great guy and a great friend, I can't believe he's gone. I was at Keystone when he was and he was fun to hang with. It's hard to believe that he's gone. But Rest in peace Colin, you'll be missed

I am so sad to have to write on this wall for such an amazing young man. Colin was a bright light as a student, with a kind smile that affected everyone around him. He was such a key member of the GSA at Wordsworth, as I'm sure he was everywhere he went. Our systems failed you and we will work harder to ensure this doesn't happen to others. Love, Dr. Maureen
