William "Bill" Cole Jr.

Stephan's father passed away today. He had been in declining health for awhile, but over the past month he worsened. Two weeks ago Stephan traveled to Florida to visit him for what we were afraid might be the last time. We are grateful that he had that opportunity.

We've spent part of our evening flipping through old photo albums. I thought I'd share a few of our favorite pictures of these two handsome fellas from back in the day.

We are very thankful for all of the prayers and kind words we've received from family and friends. Past Novembers have seen deaths on both sides of Stephan's family, so this was already an especially hard month. I am reminded, though, of this verse:
"Always rejoice, constantly pray, in everything give thanks. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." 
~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 

Our hope is in Him.


  1. Love you girl. Praying for your family.

  2. November is full of suckitude every year for me as well. Hugs to all.

  3. What wonderful photos. Praying for you all.

  5. Beautiful tribute. Praying for your family.

  6. Oh I'm so sorry. What a good looking father your husband had, so strong and loving looking.

  7. Thanks so much, lovely ladies. Your thoughts and prayers mean much to us.


I'm so glad you're here!
