Services for Cassy will be at Crosspointe Baptist Church in Millington, this Friday Aug. 12 at 6:30 p.m. There won’t be a separate visitation, it will all be one service. All who want to come are welcome. In lieu of flowers, we would appreciate that you donate to St. Jude under Team Cassy so that we can continue to honor her legacy. http://heroes.stjude.org/TeamCassy15

On Sept. 7, 2014, Cassy was rushed to the ER with severe headaches and vomiting. On Sept. 18 her diagnosis was Glioblastoma Stage IV. Over the next 23 months, Colunga and Team Cassy inspired the community, her peers and the St. Jude community. From her bright smile to her courage, Colunga became a symbol of strength, love and bond of the Millington community.
