Happy Birthday COZY!!!

This online memorial was created in loving memory of COLE KURTZ, whose life story is told throughout this memorial website. Please sign COLE's guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember COLE forever.


 To Cole, you will be missed by all. The lives you touched, the love you give, the smile that makes our day. I know that you are now in Heaven. Mommy loves you so much. My pain of losing you are immensed, though the love you have given me overcomes all that. I smile everytime I think about your smile and that great bug hug you always give me...I know I will never be alone. I love you ssssooooooo much!!! You will always be my " Cozy " with your eyelash so long, with your smile so big, with big hug so warm. Always light my path with your touch. You will always be my angel...


I wish I could close my eyes and you will be there when I opened my eyes. My heart aches, my tears bucket are empty, but I will nevr be weary of thinking of you and loving you. Everything I do in your honor from this day forward....




Though a brief glimpse through earth you did see

Your memory lives on inside of me

I cannot forget your laugh and your face

Every life touched by your love and your grace

~Love Mom

CAIRO, Ill. -- Cole D. Kurtz, 13, of Cairo died Saturday, Sept. 17, 2011, at Saint Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau.

Funeral arrangements are incomplete at Jones Funeral Home in Villa Ridge, Ill.




On Behalf of the OOM Staff and OOM Himself....


Thank YOU to all who have sent your love here and thank you for those who have donated and those who have yearned to donate but just could not.  God sees our hearts and though some of us cannot give monetarily, our prayers ARE heard and in my opinion....those are so much more valuable than any amount we could give in dollars or cents. May God richly bless everyone who has shown love, compassion and cried tears for the loss of a beautiful child.  May he rest in the Father's arms and may we be greeted in heaven by him when we get there.



8:57 PM [asells] GUYS A Special Message just Received from Islandgirl 8:39pm Hello Guys, I just want to say I love all of you soooo much. And thank you for all the prayers and the Blessings.

May God bless you and keep you through this difficult time.

I don't know you and I'm new on here. But my husband lost his son to a drunk driver in 1993 and then his first wife in 2002 in a simple medical procedure.
He said the only way to get through it is one breath at a time with God's help at that. We send you our prayers.
