I remember when "Papa Cole" (Cole's dad) was blind and Wes and I used to see him in Madison and he could pick the vegetables in his garden by feeling them - he could know what was ripe by the touch of his hand.
I only spent about a year with this family but, I did spend enough time to know where three generations of these men came from. A huge family from Madison. Farmers......... country boys at heart. And lord knows.......... they all loved heavy equipment. LOL
Cole - you're gonna be missed. Not sure what it will be like not running into you here or there. You and your family left a lot of great memories in my heart..........that will last a lifetime. Thank you for taking me into your life as a friend and for the opportunity to spend a little time in your world..........here on earth. Hope you're up there on your John Deere tractor!!!!
