In memory of one of my favorite people and dear friend. We were blessed to live nextdoor to John Cole for over 10 years. He was a daily inspiration and one of the most positive people that I have ever met ...always with a smile on his face, joy in his heart, and a twinkle in his eyes. His zest for life was contagious. He was like family to us and we will always treasure the memories of him with great fondness and respect. He was so very proud of his family and cherished the time spent with you all.
