Dear Friends and Family,
It is with heavy hearts that I share the news of the passing of my baby brother, Cole Cragun. Cole struggled with alcoholism for many years, and despite our best efforts to support him, he tragically lost his life to suicide.
Cole's passing has left an unbearable void in our lives that can never be filled. There was no one more quirky and entertaining than he was. We are now faced with the difficult task of paying for his services and ensuring that his home is saved for his children and grandson, who he loved dearly. After the loss of our parents, Cole's mental decline was rapid and he needed help, but unfortunately, he did not receive it in time. The police were involved the morning before and did not recognize his great need for their help. I also implored him to go to rehab that day as well, as per usual he declined. I feel truly heart broken because of this.
I have set up this GoFundMe page to honor Cole's legacy and raise funds to cover the costs of his services and support his family. Cole was a loving father to his daughter, Lilly, Courtney, and son, Corbin, and a proud grandfather to his grandson, Devon. He wanted nothing more than to see his children and grandson thrive.
We want to make sure that Cole's children and grandson are taken care of during this difficult time. We hope to raise enough funds to cover the costs of Cole's services and to provide some financial support to his family. They lived in the home with him at the time of his passing. I want to ensure that his home, which was a source of comfort and stability for his children, is not taken away from them. He was so proud of it.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 in Cole's memory, and we would be incredibly grateful for any support you can offer. Every dollar donated will go directly to covering the costs of Cole's services and supporting his family.
We know that Cole's story is not unique - many families are faced with the challenges of paying for services and keeping their homes after the loss of a loved one. We hope that by sharing Cole's story and raising awareness, we can make a positive impact on the lives of others who are facing similar challenges.
Thank you for your support during this difficult time. We miss our Coley Oley beyond measure. Thanks for taking the time to read this and hug your loved ones and tell them you love them any chance you get.
