"Here we are again on your birthday. I miss you deeply, but know you are resting with the Lord. There are days I want to pick up the phone and call you, but I know you are not there. I will always remember the good times we shared, the laughter, the tears and all of the memories we shared together. I still love you and always will. You will forever have a piece of me that no one can fill, or take away.
Happy Birthday Baby. Gone but not Forgotten."

"On this 2nd Angelversary I am thinking about you and the day we had to say goodbye. I know you are at peace with God in Heaven and some day we will be together again. I take solace in knowing you are no longer suffering, or in pain.
Rest with the Angels Sweetheart. I love you.

"As your 2 year Angelversary approaches, I am still missing you. I don't know what that day will hold for me, but I know It will not be easy. Some days are ok, others are difficult at best, but I will keep going on and try to be strong until the day God calls me home to be with you.
I love you and always will.

"I was one of many kids Colleen and the Burkman selflessly took in and helped in a very difficult part of my life. Colleen will always be the strongest woman I know. Great full is not a strong enough word to describe how great full I am for Colleen and the Burkman family. Colleen  I wish I could tell you how much you helped me. You are in a better place now and will forever be remembered by me as the strong woman who was there for me when others where not. I will always have the up most respect and love for you."
