In Memory Of...      

We are deeply saddened by the loss of our special brother, David Cole, after a courageous battle with cancer. He left behind a legacy to all who knew him. To celebrate his life, he leaves his wife, Brenda, dad and mom, J.T. and Kathleen Cole, brother and sister-in-law, Faron and Diana Cole, sister and brother-in-law, Brenda and George Langley, sister and brother-in-law, Wanda and Chuck VanHoose, five nieces and nephews, and five great nieces and nephews, who he loved dearly. He also leaves behind a multitude of friends, as was evident at his funeral and calling hours. His passing is truly Heaven’s gain.

As we look back now, we can see how God miraculously ordered David’s steps this past year. God always sends special people into our lives. One of his nurses and dear friend, Teresa, donated one of her kidneys, which we believe added another fifteen months to his life.

David’s last service he attended was at our "50th Year of Jubilee Celebration", on the church grounds of Eastern Road Church of God, Rittman, Ohio. Although he had to stay in his camper, he was able to hear one of his favorite singers, Brother Wade Spencer.

While we can’t help but grieve our loss, we only say, "good-bye" for now. We will be together again where we’ll never have to say good-bye. Until then, our heartache is eased when we focus on the joy and laughter we know they are all sharing around the Throne of God.

The Gate

Verse 1

Suddenly the pain is gone, that I suffered for so long, 

Now I stand at an open door. As I take one step inside,

I begin to realize, what my soul’s been searching for,

Mortal words cannot describe what appears before my eyes,

And I’m just inside the gate.


Just inside the gate where loved ones await,

God’s love shining from the throne fills Heaven with a song.

I can’t believe the change in me,

I’ve never felt so free.

And I’m just inside the gate.

Verse 2

Now at last my mind is clear, worldly thoughts have disappeared,

Now every thought is just of Him,

No more worries, doubts, or fear, these new eyes can’t shed a tear.

Peace and joy now dwell within.

I’ve never felt so young and strong; this place just feels like home. And I’m just inside the gate.
