Elisha “Amon” Cole was known as Amon to his family and close friends. Amon was the most amazing young man. He had the biggest smile that could brighten up the whole room, along with the whitest teeth! He had an overbundence of love that he just couldn’t contain to himself. He deeply cared about others. Amon was known for pranking his closest friends and family to make them laugh. He always wanted people to laugh and be happy, just as he was. He never wanted to see another person down. He just wanted to spread his joy and love. And let’s not forget about his dog Bella. He loved her so much. He also had many gifts and talents. One was his love for playing football. That was a big part of his life. His love for football led to other sports, including baseball and track. When he wasn’t playing sports he loved being on YouTube. He also enjoyed drawing in his spare time. Amon’s kind and loving soul has touched many, and for that we are blessed. Amon had many dreams and aspirations, like joining the Airforce, attending Old Dominion University, to eventually becoming a Cyber Sercurity Specialist. And he definitely had dreams to marry his bestfriend and highschool sweetheart Maddy. 

Unfortunately, on October 3rd, 2018, at the age of 17,  Amon was taken away from all of us too soon. Our lives will forever be changed. A part of us also died with him. We lost a son, a brother, and a bestfriend. He was close to many relatives and friends. We’re going to miss his big smile, goofy and echoing laugh, and his jokes. But most of all we’re going to miss the love he had for each and every one of us. And for all this we are putting together this go fund me account to send him home. All donations will go towards the funeral/burial costs. Any funds in excess will be used to create a scholarship fund in his memory. 

Thank you so much for all your support and prayers.

I ( mom/Rose/ Ms. Rose) would like to thank everyone for their generous donations to help us with all the expenses ( funeral, burial, headstone, etc) for my son Amon Cole’s passing. My daughter and I are overwhelmed by all the love and support our friends,family and community have shown us during this time. We are now in the process of creating Amon’s headstone, as promised any funds remaining will be used for a scholarship in honor of Amon. This scholarship fund will be given to NewLife “RIOT” to help the youth in our community.

I will miss my friend. We've know each since we were 8 years old. Jumping on roofs and playing basketball in the back yard. This is very hard to deal with. My mom and I want you to rest in peace and Mrs. Rose we are praying for you and your family. From JaKhari and Ms. Angie
