Knowing first hand the heartache and pain of losing a child, this entire family will be in my thoughts and prayers. If anyone knows the family personally, please let them know about this sight, I would like to offer any help or encouragement I can. BTW, my son was Aaron McKinney killed 10-31-04.

The paper said that he was on his way to early BB practice. He lost control of his truck and was killed. God bless everyone grieving this too short life.

A mighty fine young man, shame to lose him. God bless his family and comfort them in their loss. I would like to mention the awesome support of the Marble Hill community during this monumental loss. I am proud to be a member of such a loving, caring place. Love is a rare thing these days in individuals, much less an entire community. Marble Hillians you are all great folks. May you never need our community in such a way, but if you ever have a need rest assured...there are people who care and will be there for you, too. God Bless all.

its so nice to hear wonderful things that people said about cole! i didnt realize cole had so many good friends!marble hill people, your GREAT!cole is deeply missed,and appreciate for everyone that has us in their the weeks go by it gets harder, as of this day april 29,its been 23 wks.coles dad and i had coles truck set out at my brothers warhouse for ARRIVE WEEK and alot of friends signed it!the main reason we had it set out was for other kids and people to realize what speeding can do to you,and take your life in a second.all i can say is my kids are my life,and i will never know how cole was speeding that morning of nov.19 2008 and hit those 2 trees and utility pole and cory chapman racing with him and him going on to school telling the coach he(cole) was alright.well, cory he wasnt.and the sad thing is,it hasnt slowed you down! what are you waiting for babe? another race to school? well, be careful,cause the tickets are DOUBLED!

I dont get this town...they lose a very terrific friend like cole. and they still speed, dont wear seatbelts, race, and do stupid things....i thank gaylene and eddie so much for letting us see coles truck, i tried to go out there everyday to pray and to remember those things cole said or did, why did it have to be him it seems the "GOOD DIE YOUNG" and cole was a angel in an hansome body, he'd tried to help every one he could and he always like the attintion at school and in town. I only knew him for about 3-4weeks and I WISH i would have knew him more he made me laught and stay out of trouble(most of the time) and the things we talk about on the phone or at school was hillarous, i think about cole every day and every time i think of something he would do or try. Gaylene and eddie, every time i see yens you have a smile on your face. and it makes me happy to see two loving people that are loved and welcomed everywhere i love you guys both and i will ALWAYS remember cole and yens in my prayers see you guys soon...

when i woke up that morning to my mom telling me the worst news i could hear, i just bawled and couldnt move. cole and i always would ride around town and go hang out at our friends house. we played baseball together for 5 years and i loved every minute of it. even when he hit a homerun during practice and smiled at the camera and said, u better have got that. lol. i miss him so much and i am so sorry gaylene and eddie, i really am. one day you all will be together again. cole, i love you man, and cant wait to throw the baseball with you again in heaven.
