Not sure what to say?

Spent many fine summer days building forts with Coley (and Ribbon - woof) in Carisbrooke. So surprised that we never reconnected in the military, we had a lot of similar experiences (Rangers, Airborne, Afghanistan tours)!
Hope I can share a some good memories with Coley in the next life.

Jane, I was just remembering this morning as his 5th grade teacher at Trinity Lutheran School in Newport News the day he told me he couldn't learn and recite the Gettysburg Address like the rest of the class because his father said "NO!" So Coley learned and recited the beautiful Lee's Farewell Address at Appomatox for me. It is so precious just remembering him that day reciting Lee's gracious words to his loyal Confederate troops. Isn't it a good thought to know Coley eventually...

Coley was a classmate at Blue Ridge and when I think of him it brings a smile to my face. I am saddened by his passing. I wish his family the best at this difficult time.

Katherine, my thoughts and prayers for you and the family are with you. Love you sweet friend. Mike, Renelle,

I just read with much sadness the passing of Coley. I remember him well. I lived in the same townhouse development (Thousand Oaks) when he was a little boy. My daughter was his age and all the kids played together. I remember his mom (Jane)very well. She was such fun and a wonderful neighbor. I was so impressed to read how Coley grew up to be such a wonderful man, husband, father, someone who fought for his country. He is now in heaven with my son, Jeff, and I know they will be great...

We remember Coley from our years spent in the same townhouse neighborhood. Our daughter and Coley played often with other neighborhood children. We have so many good memories of his energy, laughter, and spirit,
I (Jane Renn) went to high school with Coley's father and we came to know and enjoy Jane years later, when we lived around the corner from her.
It is with great sadness that we extend our thoughts, prayers, and sympathy to them and the rest of the family at this most...

I read with great sadness today of Coley's passing. His 5th grade teacher at Trinity Lutheran School, I have many fun memories of teaching Coley. He was full of fun and adventure and he always added a great spark of energy and excitement to every day of learning. That year we put on a short version of a Shakespeare play, I can't remember now if it was Hamlet, MacBeth or Julius Caesar as in the three years I taught at the school the 5th grade put on all three plays, but I do distinctly...
