dear tracy and family:

we now recall the cole we knew,
sweet and good and strong and true,
how we thought him very bright,
and how his life was love's pure light.
we hope that you have comfort here,
that cole brought you such love and cheer,
we hope somehow you rise above
we'll dearly miss the cole we love.

Tracy, Barry and Ashley,
We were out of town when we heard the news, how our hearts cry with you! Cole was like a 2nd brother to Dillon and a 4th child to us for those wonderful early years of his life! We have never forgotten and never will! He grew into a wonderful young man with his easy smile and infectious personality. We know he will be missed by many friends and family! May God comfort you in this time of sorrow, and bring peace and healing to you and your family. We know Cole holds a special place in heaven! All our love, we hold you up in our prayers! Mary, Allen & Dillon

Cole was in one of my classes a couple years ago and although I only talked to him probably once the entire semester I was in there, he always had the entire class laughing. I've seen a lot of stuff on facebook about him, and it's obvious that he will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, Cole.

Cole, May you genuinely RIP as you join the Lord. Your wonderful family, to whom I offer sincere condolences, will guarantee that you are never forgotten. And though I hardly knew you, neither shall I. My remembrances will be of an intelligent, active, smiling good looking young man, entering adulthood. Things like this are difficult to comprehend but I trust that you will find peace eternally.

I too new Cole from that prom weekend beach house. My twins had been friends with Cole since elementary school. That adorable 3rd grade picture of Cole from the Ferguson yearbook shows that same adorable, mischievous grin.

I can't begin to express my sympathy for you and your family. I know that words can never begin to console you. Cole made a huge impact on a lot of lives in his, way too short, time on this earth.

I'm sure he will live on in the hearts of so many. God bless all of you at this tragic time.

As a mother who also lost a son too early, I share your pain and pray that God will be with you to ease that pain. Cole was a friend of my daughter and her friends and I know they are missing him and will remember him always.

Barry, Dawn, Tracy, Ashley and family: we will continue to lift you all up in prayer as you grieve the loss of your precious son Cole. Him saving 4 lives through organ donation is such a blessing. He will live on in your hearts forever. With Sympathy, Love, and Peace: Bob & Tami
