Colin was born on 18th January 1984 and would have been celebrating his 28th birthday in 2012.
This year, I would like to encourage everyone to leave any birthday wishes and any stories right here, as a comment on this blog post. (Bebo is slowly becoming irrelevant so I would like to use Colin’s website for comments, etc).
All you need to do is add in some basic information and your comment below. All comments are moderated prior to publishing and will be published as quickly as possible.
A message from Colin’s Mum…
“It is very hard to believe that Colin would be 28 today. It is impossible to state everything that I loved about Colin without feeling the loss that I do, and believe many others share.
Colin had a great sense of humour and, with it, a great presence; no one could ever not know when Colin was in a room…he had an uncanny ability to relate to people and somehow make them feel special.
Colin was always cheeky and mischievous and gave me many opportunities to meet his teachers, or should I say they wanted to see me; it was never serious, just Colin causing havoc by having a laugh.
I feel that Colin was far too young to be taken from us and therefore should be with us on his birthday. It is really still far too painful to talk about everything that was special to me, my focus has to be on getting justice for this lovely young man.”
