I remember your son from a long time ago. I and my family use to live in Jacksonville. My son, Ryan Skipper and Coley use to be great friends. I remember him so well, he was such a sweet young man. My heart break for the loss that all of you are experiencing. Know that all of you are in our prayers. It’s funny how time and space between us does not affect the memories of that wonderful little boy we have. God Bless all of you.

Sorry for your loss. Coley was one of the best landlords to my roommate and I when we lived under his apartments. Such a nice and cool guy!

Even though I only met you around 6th or 7th grade, I cannot remember not knowing you. Junior high, high school, all my time in the military and back and forth through this life you were always a constant. Before Facebook was the way to keep in touch we somehow made this friendship last through the years. Everytime I would come back to town we shared talks and laughs and tears. Even without plans I would always somehow manage to run into you and just pick up where we left off. Marriage, kids, moving ,college, work, I would always bump into you and would enjoy our talks. No words brother, I just cannot begin to explain the shock, anger, sadness. Complete sadness. Even my wife who only met you within the last few years is torn up. Everyone loved you man. Everyone! God owes me a few favors for some things I cannot talk about, I will see you again Bro., I promise you that. I just need a long hug and then we are going to fight. For like a long time. So rest easy little brother! I miss you already. And will start training to kick your butt in the morning. I love you man, NO homo.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I met Sheila and Coley thru my job delivering mail in Jacksonville. It is terrible to lose someone & I’m sure even harder to lose a child. You will be in my prayers.

I met Shelia when I moved here and she was pregnant with Coley so I knew him all his life. I use to run by their house and Coley would run down to the road to wave to me when he was just a little boy. Such a cute child and grew to a nice young man. My heart is broken for you all.

One the first things I noticed about Coley when he came to work for the Jacksonville Fire Dept was his infectious smile. Prayers and blessings to the family at this time.
