Naden Dewey Cole

Our little angel, Naden Dewey Cole, of Riverdale, was called to the Lord on Jan. 26, 2012. Our angel was born, June 9, 2011, to Gregory Allen and Tushanna Purdic Cole. Naden laughed and smiled, bringing joy to everyone he touched. Mark: 10:14, “Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the Kingdom of God.”
