Cole was always a good kid. He was my baby and my sidekick. He was loved by his entire family.
He is terribly missed by all. He was very witty and sarcastic. He scored an 1800 on his SATs and was offered numerous scholarships but he never did get to accept any of the offers due to his passing the summer of his Senior year. The photo was taken a few days before his passing it is the last photo taken.
Cole passed from accidental multiple drug toxicity June 26,2013. I found him and that day has forever seared a memory I will have to deal with the rest of my life. Since his passing I have created a PSA to help others realize the dangers of prescription drugs.
Cole had an older sister and brother. Kieri Krout and Caden Krout.
