After a 1 1/2 year fight with leukemia, my very good friend's nephew passed away last night. It is with a mixture of sadness and relief that I write this blog. He has been in hospice since the first of November and did get to take his Make a Wish trip to Walt DIsney World...had he been able to beat the cancer he would have been going to Atlantis in the Bahamas next month. This little guy fought so hard and overcame so many of the setback that he suffered. Unfortunately the cancer was just too strong and he has been in a ton of pain for the past two weeks. We couldn't figure out why little Cole was still sticking around until I saw his mom's blog post on Saturday...she was questioning why God hadn't taken him yet. I personally believe that God and Cole were waiting for his mom to be ready to say goodbye. Heaven has a new little angel who liked to say bad words, laugh at inappropriate things, said it like it was, and like to smack the nurses on the butt and shoot them with nerf guns. I hope they appreciate him and admire him as much as I did!
