DENVER  — Annette Conquering Bear, 51, was steps away from walking into her apartment tower near Colfax and Zenobia when a driver hit and killed her.

Now, all you will find on the sidewalk is a candle and a card taped to a tree.

All of Annette's children were raised in foster care and for some of the siblings like, Claudia Briseno, forgiveness has taken time.

"Even in the eight years that I didn't talk to her not a day went by that I didn't think about her and least know that I still loved her."

Claudio started speaking with his mom six weeks ago.

In the middle of repairing their relationship and regaining a mother he hadn't had in his life for years, she was taken.

"This seemed like the beginning of forgiveness and turning a new leaf and I told her we plan to have kids one day and it would have been nice to give her a grandson or a granddaughter."

Her other son, Daryle Conquering Bear, says the person who killed their mother just days before her birthday, should turn themselves in.

"She would forgive you if you came forward. I know she would."

If you would like to help the family with funeral costs, Daryle Conquering Bear, is accepting funds through Venmo and Paypal.
