I have such fond memories of your family. OJ held a special place in my husband's heart when he wasn't a lot older than your son. I think we were connected in some way to the Stake Young Adults. He helped us during a move to Quail Run before you were married I believe. I was so sad to hear about Kolten and hope this message conveys a desire to wrap my arms around you and help the hurt to disappear among the many wonderful memories you can call upon. From the postings on Facebook I see that you are surrounded by loving family and friends. I can just imagine the strength you are to one another. Sending my love and tight, tight virtual hugs.

From Ruth Hanson, now living in Oregon

As a terrified freshman kolten helped me realize high school wasn’t that scary at all. Throughout high school he became one of my favorite people. He never failed to make me laugh and feel like I belonged. No matter how long I went Without talking to him we always picked back up like we never stopped talking.
It still doesn’t feel real that he’s gone. We were talking about hanging out a few weeks ago if I came back to town...
Your son changed the lives of many and had a heart that isn’t easily found in today’s doom and gloom world. I am
Beyond heart broken that he was taken from y’all and everyone who loved him so soon. Lord knows he had big plans and would have eventually conquered the world. No amount of apologies could ever fill the void that kolten will leave but I will offer my prayers and condolences to your grieving family.

OJ and family, I will always have a very special place in my heart for Kolten. He would come into the shop, and no matter what, he would light up the place. Kolten could definitely tell us some stories, always made us laugh. He had a big heart, a great personality and a smile so big, and we loved him.
Taken way too soon.
I will miss him very much.
My prayers and thoughts are with you all.
