No Dark Colors!Friday, October 09 2009
Colleen's memorial service is held, Victoria and JT have words, and Sharon heads to the cabin.
Katherine, Murphy, Noah, Nick, and Phyllis talk at Colleen's memorial. Katherine compliments their outfits. Nick says they got the memo regarding 'no dark colors.' Kay says it was Billy's idea. Kay tells them Colleen was buried next to Brad. She asks about Summer, and afterward, pulls Nick aside and tells him she's sorry about the baby.
Sharon sits with her mom, Doris, in the coffee house. They discuss the loss of the baby. Doris says he won't feel it the same way Sharon will. Sharon tells her mother that she has accepted that she and Nick aren't going to be together. Sharon tells Doris that she is going up to the Abbott cabin to spread the baby's ashes. Doris realizes she's going to do it without Nick, and urges her to wait. Sharon says she has to do this now.
Devon and Neil arrive at Lily and Cane's house to go to Colleen's memorial. Neil notices that Lily doesn't look well at all. She thinks it's a hot flash, but Cane is concerned enough to call the doctor. An argument ensues about whether Lily should go to the memorial service. Lily is adamant that Colleen was always there for her! Neil and Devon leave, saying they'll explain why she can't come. Lily sits with Cane, and says she hates that she can't be there! She asks to be alone. Cane leaves for a while, then comes back with Humphrey. Lily is cheered up!
Jack and Ashley talk at Colleen's memorial gathering. They recall how excited John was when Colleen was born. The doorbell rings and Mac walks over to open it - it's Chloe. She comes in and she, Mac, and Billy talk to Katherine, thanking her for rehiring Jill - she's been much better to live with! Katherine walks away, and Chloe tells Billy she'd like to stay - Colleen stood up for her when she needed her to as her maid of honor - she was a class act. Billy nods. He and Mac look at a photo of Colleen - he says he took it. Katherine comes over as Chloe gets a call from Esther that Delia stopped crying. Billy states that he'll make sure his daughter knows about Colleen. Kevin pays his respects to Traci, then Daniel approaches and gives her a drawing of Colleen - Traci is moved. Ashley comes over and hugs her sister.
In the hospital, Nikki listens as Victor's doctor ups the dosage on his meds. When the doctor leaves, Victor and Nikki discuss the Abbott family saying goodbye to Colleen today. Nikki remarks that the service should be starting any minute. Victor wonders how they'll react to what he did. Nikki says hopefully they'll see that it's from the heart. As Nikki stands up to get Victor the newspaper, he suddenly has a seizure! Nikki yells for a doctor!
Abby and Noah chat with Phyllis and Nick at the memorial gathering. Phyllis reassures Abby as Nick takes a phone call - it's Doris Collins. She tells him that Sharon is headed to the Abbott cabin with the baby's ashes - she thought he should know! Nick gets off the phone and tells Phyllis and Noah what's going on. Phyllis says she will stay there - he should go. Noah says he's coming too and Nick agrees, but just then Abby asks Noah to sit with her. Nick says he'll go himself.
Neil and Devon arrive at the memorial gathering. Daniel greets Neil and asks about Lily. The service begins with Billy speaking to the crowd. He says they've all shed some tears, but Colleen was about joy. Billy says they will honor her life with smiles and laughter. Traci comes forward and says she delivered Colleen into Brad's waiting arms when she was born, and a few days ago she had to do that again. Traci notes that Colleen loved completely, and touched many lives. She talks about the organ donations that were made - they're miracles.
Victoria arrives at Colleen's service just as Traci is asking if anyone has anything to share. Victoria has a letter from Victor and asks to read it aloud. Billy says this isn't about Victor, but Traci gives her the go ahead. The letter says the Newman family shares their sorrow, and at the same time is filled with gratitude. It remarks on all of those Colleen helped save - they are her living legacy. Victor says when he holds his daughter he will remember that Colleen made it possible, and will hold her in his heart.
JT gets up to speak about Colleen. He says how she changed his life. Jack steps up and says he couldn't say no to Colleen's smile. He shares how she even got him to try Zumba! Everyone laughs and claps as he demonstrates. Ashley gets up and remembers how they always knew Colleen loved them, even when she wasn't with them - and she still does. Abby takes a turn, saying she will live by Colleen's advice now. Neil speaks about Lily and Colleen's friendship. Devon calls Cane and Lily so they can listen through the phone. Traci thanks him.
Victoria speaks to Abby during a break in the memorial service. Abby thanks her for coming. Vikki tells Abby that Victor is doing great and intends to take good care of her sister's heart. JT talks in a quiet spot with Mac - he says he wouldn't have blamed Traci if she had told Victoria to take the letter and shove it - everyone knows Victor was out to destroy Colleen and now he's alive because she's dead! Victoria has come up behind them and overhears! JT apologizes, saying it's just hard to accept. Victoria says it's okay, but Victor wasn't trying to destroy Colleen's life - he went out to the lake to try and save her. She won't be sorry her father is alive.
Katherine remembers Colleen as the service continues. Kevin is the next to speak. He mentions the organ donations, and how grateful he is for what Colleen did for him. Billy speaks with his voice trembling, as he says none of them got to spend enough time with Colleen. He urges them all to see life the way she did, though, and treat people the way she did. Everyone takes a red balloon and releases it into the sky.
In the hospital, a medical team has arrived and Victor is still having seizures. Nikki asks if he's rejecting the heart?! Nikki is whisked out of the way, and cries with a hand over her mouth.
Sharon sits in the Abbott cabin alone. Nick comes to the door, and they look at one another.
Neil brings Lily a balloon from the service. Neil and Cane watch as she releases it into the sky.
