    In elementary school I was close with Cole, he was so sweet! In high school, we attended Confirmation classes together and stayed friends. We lost touch after high school, but never forgot about him. His smile and laugh lit up a room, and he always had such a caring heart. I am truly saddened and sorry to hear of his passing. My thoughts are with his family in this time. He impacted a lot of lives and he will be greatly missed.

    So sorry to hear of your loss of such a great guy. We worked at the same construction site and became good friends.
