Dear Theresa, Bob, and family. I was extremely saddened to hear the news of Cole's tragic passing. My heart goes out to all of you. I know my Mother already wrote a message but I, personally, had a moment today where Cole actually came to mind and I wanted to share. I was visiting my parents and we were talking about how my Dad used to come on those Marysville skiing trips with us. Dad was talking about how much he used to love going with us on those trips and how the boys cracked him up! We laughed about how Cole thought it was hilarious that my Dad had bombed a ski hill while on his cellphone for work and it made us smile! I just want to say, not all of the kids were nice to me during elementary school, but I so fondly remember how nice and friendly Cole and Jake always were to me and that continued throughout highschool and later years. You guys truly raised your boys well. Sending thoughts and prayers.

Carol and I wish to send our sincere condolences to Theresa, Bob, Jake and Michael for their loss. For at least the first 25 years of Cole's life we lived across the road from them on Melrose Road. On many occasions, whether it was to help move furniture, cut down a tree or be available to give us an update on baseball or what was being harvested on the farm Cole was there to help and inform. Our wonderful memories of Cole will be with us forever. Wayne and Carol Pascoe
