Please pray for the entire Cole family as they mourn the loss of this incredible man of God.

We received the news that Bro. Cole Passed away yesterday around 4 p.m our time. Charles immediately got online and found a ticket out of Vienna into Detroit the same night and will head to WV with Bro. and Sis. Stark on Monday.

It was a long night of packing and organizing for his departure.

Aleia understands that Paw Paw Cole passed away. Charles kissed her good bye before he left at 4 a.m and she said she didn't want him to go but that she understood that Paw Paw Cole was Daddy's special Grandpa......and many of you know that he was more then that in so many ways to many people.

Bro. Cole was a man of passion, vision and consistency.... one you could depend on to Pray no matter what time of the day. He will be missed but what he leaves behind will go forward....I personally am so thankful for the time he spent in mentoring my husband and I, words can not begin to express how much we respected and honored Bro. Cole's opinion and advice.

We are so thankful our lives were touched by such an amazing man of God. He could have you laughing so hard you would cry and in a snap of a finger he could have you on your knees traveling under the anointing of God. He was unique in every way, his laugh was contagious and his eyes were soft and full of love and yet full of fire.

I will always hold close to my heart every word of encouragement he's given to us as a couple, and every prayer of anointing and blessing he has prayed over us as a family.

I am so grateful that Bro. Cole took the time for us and believe in us but most of all loved us and trusted us. We love you (Paw-Paw Cole) and will miss you so much.
