    Dear Cole - hope you are doing well after another year of school.

    Dear Cole, It was nice to see your email today, updating us all on how you are doing! I am so happy that you're healing- body, mind and spirit and moving in such a positive direction. You have been an inspiration to all who have been following your fall and your amazing progress.

    I am Cathy (Olry)Richelieu's oldest sister Anne. I have been just one of many who have been praying for you since your fall. We all are so thankful to God that HE has blessed you by putting the right people in the right places at the right times, so that your life can continue to be a blessing to HIM, to your family and friends -- and to those of us that don't even know you well. During this physical time of healing for your body, when you take those deep breaths (because of pain or impatience, or for whatever reasons) remember, those that have been praying for you, are continuing to pray for you (and your family) and asking God to bless you all with continued strength of spirit, mind and body. It's a VERY tiring time for all of you, I know, but the future looks good and promising for all.

    Keep those wonderful updates coming - we all look forward to hearing them. Blessings,.... Cary, Casey and Caitlin's Aunt Annie!

    Hey Cole, I am so glad that you are getting better, even if you have to shower with a camping shower and plastic sacks ;) You are in my prayers, and I cannot wait to see you!

    Love always!

    Thank you for continuing to update us! I know how frustrating insurance can be, but once everything's up and running that will be a relief.

    Can't wait to hear about how the appointments go and what the doctor's say.

    We're sending good thoughts your way!

    Today when your dad told me about your accident, it felt like my heart dropped. I cannot tell you how relieved I was to hear that considering the magnitude of your accident, you were making great progress towards your recovery.

    Just know you are in our thoughts and we wish you a speedy recovery.

    hey Cole,

    glad to here your back home in the friendly confines where McCall can wait on you hand and foot.(let me know how that turns out :) ) God is doing wonderful things in your life. All the glory to him.

    I hope to bring the family by before we go to Mammoth at the end of the month, but things are very busy, so if we can't make it until we get back we'll keep praying for you health.

    keep your spirits up and do what the therapists tell you plus 10!

    we love you, uncle mike and family

    Hi Cole,

    It's Uncle Terry,

    Michele, Kyle and I are so excited to hear you guys are coming home. I bet all of you will be glad to spent a night at your own home. Cole, I told your Mom that we have a walk in shower downstairs that you can use any time. Kyle wants me to remind you that we have an xbox 360 and a Wii hooked up to the big TV downstairs and he is ready to help you with your rehab (ha,ha).

    I'm sure that your trip home will seem to take forever, but relax, take a deep breath and keep in mind what your working toward.

    See you soon.

    Uncle Terry, Aunt Michele and Cousin Kyle.

    Psalm 62: 5-8

    "Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge"

    You have been through something that most people will never go through and that is a near death experience.You have been lifted up to Him through many people and He has placed you back on your feet. You are standing on the Rock, His name is Jesus Christ. You will not be shaken, lean on Him. Boast in Him! His love endures forever!

    In Him,

    Grah, Kara and Dallas

    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall...
    Humpty Dumpty had a great fall...
    All of "King Cole's" horses
    And all of his men...
    Put the Ole Soul together again.
