I did not know your son but found this site posted through Cole's Foundation. However, it is certainly a small world as I live in Richmond and work very close to New Hanover Presbyterian Church where services for Will were held. My deepest condolences go out to your family. From the pictures in the photo gallery, I can tell Will was a handsome young man who was loved by many!

I never knew Will nor your family before he became ill. The spirit of all of you and especially Will is something I will always remember. To one "fighter mom" from another.
