Molli, I am so sorry for your loss. I know how much your family means to you & how much you love them. My heart breaks for you and Andrea. The men in your family have been taken much too soon. I know the two of you are strong and will make it through by being there for one another and keeping each other close. I am praying for you both and hope your wonderful memories carry you through this difficult time.

Cole and I met at the dental office 12 years ago and immediately became great friends; our birthdays were 7/30 and 8/1, so we had some of those Leo traits that we shared, adding to our bond...

I’m especially fond of the 2008 - 2012 era that we shared, I could write 2000 pages worth of stories about Cole and I over those years, and much more about the last decade.

We had a ridiculous amount of inside jokes and ‘lingo’ that only we understood.... we worked together, we worked out together and we played together. Those were some glorious, lighthearted and carefree days. We rekindled our friendship over the last 3 or so years and I wish we would have had more time together. I miss my brother Cole and I hope I make him proud with the things I do with the rest of my life.

Mrs Marak and Andrea: I loved Cole like a brother, and I am so sorry, I have cried more this last week than I ever thought possible. I will be praying for you and your family. I am left with a hole in my heart, and I want you to know I will miss him for the rest of my life. I know he’s reunited with family and God now, and I can’t wait to see him again one day.

I am so proud to have had a friend like Cole, I already miss him, and I think about him a lot.

I’m always available for your family, and I’d love to support you both in any way that I can.

During our childhood, Cole and I competed against each other for several youth soccer championships in Coppell, TX. As the coaches’ sons of our respective teams, we enjoyed a special friendship growing up too. We reconnected later in life, and I will never forget my 32nd surprise birthday party that he attended. Thank you for the memories my friend!

We were heartbroken when we heard the news of Cole's death. I think he and Keegan became friends when they were about 3 years old. Along with Nathan and Tyler, there was hardly a day when the four of them weren't at our house or the Marak house. So many memories of little Keegan include little Cole right beside him: at Mother's Day Out, at birthday parties, playing in the sandbox and backyard, as teammates on Rocco's Pasta Bombers and on and on. When we moved, they didn't see each other as often but through the years we would occasionally see Cole. We were always met with a big smile and a hug. Cole was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Deepest Sympathy.

So happy I was lucky enough to share so many countless memories with Cole. But heart broken that there wasn’t more time for many more.

Te Amo Hermano.

Cole would always pop in when I visited Molli with a friendly grin and a story to share. He always seemed so proud of his family and had many friends around. His antics in high school and for a few years afterwards were legendary and brought brought us many laughs as Molli shared them. Cole really became a steward of the property in Decatur helping to create a beautiful yard for everyone to enjoy. His laughter, charm, and love of family will leave such a wound. My heart aches for your loss. This shouldn’t be...

I lived across the street from molli andrea and cole for last 2 years, he would come and help me with many projects and i in return would help cole with his. We watched every cowboys game together the last season in my shop, he was as big a fan as me. Iam going to miss seeing cole out in that yard working or playing across the street. When cowboys season comes around it is not going to feel the same without my friend and neighbor cole there with me. Rest in peace my friend.

Cole was always the first one to offer his help. We all watched him help out our neighbors in anyway he could. I will always remember looking out our window one morning and he noticed our neighbors tree that the had planted recently was leaning over. He was out there stabilizing it so it was secure in the ground and then he left. Wow, Cole you will sure be missed in the neighborhood and everyone that had the pleasure of meeting you.
Rest In Peace!

I loved him dearly. And so did Caleb. They loved to hunt together. Now they are united again...for eternity. My heart goes out to your family. I’m keeping you in my prayers and sending my love.

My thoughts and prayers to the family. I will miss him a lot, even though I knew him for only a very short time. He was always one of the ones I looked for on pool night and loved playing him. We always laughed and had a great time. God speed my brother.
