SuuuuuuuuuuuuuperNicholas, 

Happy Birthday! How are you doing? I can feel the party and your presence. As you are aware your mother and father are doing wonderful things through your foundation and your spirit, and we all are so Thankful. 

Love you, and look forward to seeing you when that day comes.

We were fortunate enough to have the suite for the Not So Silent Night concert on December 13. We packed it with a bunch of 13 years olds and we rocked- even the old timers that were there! The suite setting was perfect as it let our Nick avoid the big crowds- very important with his counts being a little low. It was an unforgettable evening and we extend gratitude for allowing us that opportunity. Nights like this help our Nick to power through his treatment with a positive attitude and is an incredible way to honor the memory of your Nicholas. Many thanks.

We wanted to thank you for the great experience and fun our kids and we had at the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus at Oakland Arena. We had a wonderful time. It was so nice to have all these accommodations for the kid with the that amount of problems and complications: preferred parking, suite seating and amenities.. 
Thank you very much again for everything. Our son received so much energy and positive charge!

I honestly think that what the Nicholas Colby fund is doing is very special. It is apparent that little perks such as being able to go to a concert in a private booth make living with sickness easier to deal with. Thank you for the fun One Direction concert and your help to people in situations similar to Nicholas'.

I am so thankful to Nicholas Colby fund. Yesterday, my friends and I from the Lucille Packard Hospital School got to go a One Direction Concert thanks to the fund. Though I am not a directioner, I really loved the opportunity to get out and have fun with my friends just like a normal teenager.
Learning firsthand Nicholas's story from his mother made me deeply in awe of the similarity of our stories. We shared similar diagnoses and the same doctors and even share the same name (with a different spelling). I am deeply sorry about his death but am thankful that despite the pain that death brings, the Gilbert family is dedicated to bring about good to people in similar conditions, instead of dwelling on the sadness and becoming bitter.
I am amazed at the Gilbert family's dedication to give back to the community and their help goes much appreciated.
Thank you so much for a wonderful evening,
Nico

Your amazing mom and dad now help so many, trying to ease pain in others, giving them little bits of hope in their toughest times ... A little bit of the rainbow shines through ...

Thank you so much for your love of children and those affected by life's challenges. Last night I attended the Warriors game with my healthy son and his two friends as Jake's(patient) blood numbers were low and did not allow him to attend. The impact on the enitre family is monumental. It was so relieving to spend an evening out with my other son and see him laugh and smile. Unfortunately we did not get to spend it together as an entire family unit. Those days are on hold for now.

In looking at the website I am sitting at my desk with mixed emotions. Sadness from the tradegy that your family had to endure, but uplifted by the incredible amount of love and joy from an incredible human being named Nicholas. His love for life, family and the Warriors is something that will continue to grow in me by reading his story, looking at his pictures and having had the opportunity to have met such a wonderful set of parents. Thank you Lamont and Sheila Gilbert for making a difference in this world...

In Memory Of You 

We want to always remember
The beautiful life you lived
And keep alive the memories we have
Through remembering what you did

For you're so special to all of us
A wonderful person indeed
Your love, laughter and warm smile
Reflected a heart that believed

Just in the everyday things we do
We remember your faith and love
In the words you spoke to help us through
Is a continued reminder for us

Although we miss you so very much
We know we'll see you once more
For this is the hope we have in God
Being re-united in the Lord

And as we gather we'll continue to share
Special times we went through
For these are memories that warm our hearts
As we honour the memory of you

We miss you and we all know that you are having a special birthday up in heaven, with balloons and cake and some basketball fun! Happy Birthday! XOX

I've never been at a Warriors game before and it was a great experience for both me and my girlfriend. I've been offered tickets for other events in the past but because of my recovering immune system, I wasn't able to go and now that I am I was very happy to be there and take it all in. What a show. 
I'll be honest I felt guilty because I'm 22 years old now, 19 when I was diagnosed, and felt maybe a child should have taken our seats instead. But Mr Lamont made me feel very welcomed. Him and his wife Sheila are great loving people and that love pours right out of them. 
Thank you for having us at the Warriors game and also for the back pack I received during my long stays at the hospital. While I might not be a child, I truly am a kid at heart. Thank you for all you guys do.

All of us at Children's Hospital are so grateful for all Lamont and Sheila do for our patients and families. The Backpacks of Fun, and tickets for so many games have provided countless smiles, hugs, and joyful memories for kids and families who really need them. What a wonderful tribute for their son Nicholas Colby.

Since our son, Brandon, was diagnosed with ALL almost a year back, our world just suddenly came to a halt. We have not attended any events as a family since then. Thank you both for your kindness and generosity that we were given tickets to see Warrior/Jazz basketball game and also your personal visit during half time. We are touched and inspired by your outflow of love and energy. 
We had a wonderful time and the sense of "fun" as a family was heartly felt. We are planning and looking forward to fututre family events.
