A Message from the Coltons
Joe loved the world because every day was special, exciting, new and full of discovery. Whether he was in his backyard, the desert, the mountains, on rocks or rivers, every moment was a joyful exploration. Learning about life in this way brought him great contentment and pride, and at six years old, he had the knowledge of love for live that few of any age ewill ever reach, but to which we should all aspire.
