My mother Jenny McCollum grew up in Everett. She graduated from Everett High, owned 2 successful antique shops in Everett, lived at 2026 Colby Avenue and died in Everett at the intersection of 23rd and Wetmore, four blocks from home. Nothing will bring her or the other 2 boys back. The best that can be done is remembering with love and atone. For the first time I recently connected with the person driving the vehicle, the person that was responsible for the death of my mother and 2 of his friends. It was a long overdue meeting. I am glad it took place, it seems additional healing can occur, and something beyond healing. He is human, someone that made choices, as we all do at times, that had far reaching consequences. His intent that day was not to go out and harm others. I can forgive him for the choices he made that day and I can safely develop a relationship with him due to the unforeseen circumstance that took my mother.
BENCH WILL BE PURCHASED THROUGH SNOHOMISH COUNTY PARKS DONATION PROGRAM ANY EXTRA MONEY WILL BE DONATED TO THE FAMILIES OF THE 2 BOYS ALSO LOST IN THE CRASH.
