Hey Cole, I really miss seeing your happy smiling face. I think about you all the time. Everytime I see a dragonfly I like to think you are sending it to let us know you are saying hello and that everything will be okay. I know its silly but it makes me feel better whether it be true or not. I know one day we will all be back together but until then I will cherish my memories of all the good times we had here on earth forever and always.
I love you Cole.
