Cole I sit here and read over your reflections and we always express the same. I guess we will never come to grips the finality of your being gone from us. We never get over what should have been. What could have been. I guess the season of our life as time goes by is where our thoughts turn too. For me it is the ghosts of grandchildren that should of been by now. I have a love for these children that will never be. I wonder if they would have been big babies like you or possibly twins. Would they have those dark eyes and hair and a smile that never ends. Would they be as good as you were as a child and young adult. You never gave us a minutes worry until of course when you were killed. I miss you so much Cole it is really unbearable tonight. But I’ll shut my eyes shortly and go to sleep with thoughts of you. I love you son with every fiber of my being always and forever.
