Please help us support our wonderful teacher, Colleen, and the baby girl that she is expecting in early February.   Colleen's fiancee, Steve Pacatte, died unexpectedly in a motor vehicle collision, and we are collecting donations to help support her and their baby. 

Steve was a loved and respected firefighter who worked for the San Francisco Fire Department for the past 3 years, most recently at Station 14.  Prior to this he worked for the Tiburon Fire District and Marin County Fire Department, and last month helped battle the Camp Fire in Butte County.   Steve was a graduate of Sacred Heart.  He was really excited about becoming a dad.  Our hearts go out to Colleen and Steve’s families.

This fundraiser is endorsed by Captain Frank Hsieh of Station 14, San Francisco Fire Department.

To everyone who helped our family.
Perhaps you sent a lovely card,
Or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent a funeral spray,
If so we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words,
As any friend could say.
Perhaps you were not there at all,
Just thought of us that day.
Perhaps you contributed to a campaign,
That will help Colleen and Millie find their way.
Whatever you did to console our hearts,
We thank you so very much, whatever the part.
The Pacatte Family, Colleen, & Millie
