Leave it to John-Michael Keyes and Ellen Stoddard-Keyes of the I Love U Guys Foundation to give a plot of land that name.
The Keyes' daughter Emily was killed during the shooting at Platte Canyon High School in September of 2006. The last text message Emily sent her parents was "I Love U Guys."
Since the shooting, the Keyes made it their mission to change the way school districts look at security and have been speaking across the country on that very subject.
They've turned their personal tragedy into something others can learn from.
So when an anonymous donor gave the foundation 15 acres in Bailey, the Keyes said it just made sense not to sell it, but turn into something everyone can benefit from.
"There being no community center at all in this area, no way to serve the families and students and just the general population, we're starting to put together a plan now to share this space with the people around us," Stoddard-Keyes said. "Pavilions, trails, there is so much wonderful nature here, so that's our goal, just to share it. We got through a really traumatic time with the help of our friends and neighbors and families, and this is a way we can return the favor."
The Foundation doesn't have any concrete plans yet. Fire mitigation of the land comes first, according to Keyes.
Right now, the foundation is taking suggestions from the community as to what they would like at http://iloveuguys.org/community/community_place.html.
Preliminarily, the Keyes would like to see a trail, an amphitheater and a pavilion.
The project will be independently funded through donations and the purchase of bricks.
"It is a tough economy," Stoddard-Keyes said. "Because of that, it may take us a little longer with each step, but patience. If we do it in small enough pieces then I think it is certainly doable. People love this part of the state, so we've been speaking and presenting around the country. Those people that we speak to would also like to give back in some way and this is the way ideally we get bricks from around the country helping fund this project. We're not just leaning on our own small community, but asking everyone to toss in a little bit."
The property is currently slated for residential use. The foundation will have to go through the re-zoning process.
"I can't comment on this case. But in general people who volunteer for Park County add social fabric that is very important and these are the people who make ours a great community," Mark Dowaliby, one of three Park County commissioners told 9NEWS.
"I think it's a great organization, think John-Michael Keyes efforts for the children in the community are great. I believe he really truly has a good heart for the community. Ellen does, too. It's a good thing what they are doing," commissioner John Tighe said.
Stoddard-Keyes says it will take five to 10 years to fill out the property.
"I think we're going to surprise ourselves," she said.
