    candle 7I have such wonderful memories of Uncle David from throughout my life. I was one of the candlelighters when he and Aunt Marta got married. The last time I saw him was at Grant’s wedding where he was the perfect father of the groom. Much love to you all. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

    candle 8Marta Cole and Grant Cole I am beyond sorry for your loss. As I read this post with tears coming down my face. He was my hands down favorite client ever!!!! He was so sweet and I’m gonna miss him dearly. His calls for his appointments were never short of hilarious. I may still have some voicemails from him as well. I remember him telling me the best jokes and just being the most warm hearted man. You all are so lucky and blessed to have had him. I’m so sorry for your loss. I guarantee he will be missed by so many.

    So sorry to hear of the passing of my dear friend Dave Cole aka “Big Dave’s Deluxe”so nicknamed by me. I especially, appreciated the wit and humor you always brought to our gatherings at the Pool Clubhouse and in the “Garage Man Caves”of all of us in the Liberty Knoll/Lexington subdivisions in Madison, AL. My heartfelt condolences go out our sweet Marta and the rest of the family during this difficult time. Having lost my own son Brian to tragedy in July of last year I truly feel your pain but know that he is in a better place now with God and no longer hurting and that you all just like me with my son Brian will be with him again someday. God bless you all and Godspeed to your pain and suffering.
