After he had waged a valiant 18 month fight against a very aggressive neuroblastoma, God asked Cole, the 5 year old grandson of a friend from work, to give up the battle. He did and God took him home yesterday.

While Cole no longer needs prayers, I ask that, in your charity, you please remember his loving family. Their relief that he is no longer in pain and belief that he is a better place are still tinged with an overwhelming sorrow that those of us who have never lost a small child cannot really fathom.

Prayers for his loving parents, Michelle and Tony, for his devoted grandparents, Bob and Maryann, and all of Cole's family, but most especially for his very brave big sister, 10 year old Tara, and his bewildered and distraught identical twin brother, 5 year old Troy, who has endured months of periodic and often prolonged separations from his alter ego, alternating between courage and anger, and now must face what life will be like without his dearest and most beloved friend.

May the Theotokos watch with loving kindness over Cole's family, extending her mantle of protection over all who loved him but, most particularly, over his young sister, Tara, and little Troy. May the Lord bless them with memories of all the wonderful moments that were shared together and spare them recollection of the pain and suffering that they watched Cole endure.

May the memory of this little boy be eternal.

The dead always need our prayers, if not for their benefit, then for ours.  May God be with the soul of the child Cole and bring comfort and healing to his parents and those close to him.  And if God finds him innocent due to his age and suffering, may Cole also pray for our souls that we may be saved.
