Last week I posted about Cole. I told only the smallest piece of his story and asked what I thought was a large favor.
You responded in ways that, quite honestly, boggle my mind.
Over 43,000 page views, 2,157 cards, 1700 emails, 220 comments, countless shares and one very special message from Spongebob himself.
The amount of love and support you’ve shown to Cole and my family can’t be measured.
It pains me to say that Cole was unable to thoroughly enjoy his birthday, most of the day it was a struggle to simply keep him comfortable. That evening, however, he had an hour or so of alertness and awareness in which he was able to laugh and enjoy some of his gifts.
Caleb and Dawn (Cole’s parents) wanted to make sure that everyone knows just how touched they were and still are at the outpouring of love for Cole.
I wish I could personally thank each an every one of you and I hope that someday should any of you need it, I will be able to pay it forward.
