My Sambo.. right now you are telling everyone to shut the $&@$ up and stop being big vagi&!@.. in not such nice words. But in your Sambo way.. It is true that death is a part of life. I think the thought of life without you in it is what's so hard to wrap my mind around. The bars will never be the same. You, my dear beautiful friend, are a legend. I am very proud to have worked right along side of you and Samuel. We will all meet again, and I might even drink a Lonestar. ;)
We are celebrating your life on Friday. "Funeral" sounds so final. Like this is the last chance to say anything to you, goodbyes and whatever's. It will never be the last anything with you.
Thank you for being my friend, my mentor, and not giving a **** what anyone thinks. I love you with my whole heart and I will cherish all the wisdom and skills you taught me.
Rest easy..

My prayers and sympathy are extended to the family and loved ones of Mr. Cole. Keep your faith in the resurrection promised at John 5:28, 29. Soon God will put an end to all sickness, sorrow and pain. He will also do away with our enemy death as promised at 1 Corinthians 15:26. Pray for God's kingdom to come as Jesus taugt us to do. Please be comforted by the words expressed at Revelation 21:3, 4. Remember: God keeps His promises and it is impossible for God to lie!
