Hello, are you there?
I am here
Are you there?
Hello, I'll be happy to help as soon as you write back.
I want to try to help, but I am not receiving your responses. Are you there? Please reply and I will try and help.
First of all, I am really sorry about your loss. It must be so hurtful for you and I wish I could say something to assuage that hurt. I can't, so please know that you have my sympathy.
That said, I know of no law in Colorado or anywhere else whereby you can compel parents (even if they are your children) to release such a document. I am sure they are hurting too and there is likely no way to intervene, legally or otherwise.
Hopefully, time will heal these wounds. Until then, I don' think there is much you can do. Please don't shoot the messenger.
I hope this helps.
