    I am sooo sorry to hear this. He was a good friend of my son Max who passed away in 2005. He wrote a wonderful letter in memory of Max that we treasure to this day.
    My sincere condolences!! Jim Wilson

    It breaks my heart everytime I hear of another young, amazing, loved soul taken far to soon by the disease of addiction. My love, thoughts and prayers are with Cole's family. It is just so unfair. All my love...
