I will always remember Miss Cole as a beautiful lady inside as well as out. I have memories of her driving Mycheal and me to and from orchestra practice and basically treating me like a daughter. To the family, and especially my good friend Mycheal, please know that my heart is with you.

The Cole Family have my deepest condolence and prayers . It was a great privilege to be apart of Mary Ann's life. Essentially when she was Dean of Antioch District. Her Spirit has returned to God who gave it according to Essclesiastes 12:7.
