Cole Marsh Celebration:  Hi there, my name is Jeremy Diffner. I am one of Cole’s very good friends. I wanted to start this GoFundMe to help Ken Marsh, and Moreen Marsh afford the costs of Cole’s Funeral and their lost wages this week. Any donation would mean so much to all of us. There is NO pressure to donate, but every cent is very appreciated. I would like Cole to have the type of Celibration he deserves, with your donations we could make this happen. Again, thank you for any of the donations we do recieve. I know Cole is smiling down on us, wherever he may be. Rest easy Cole Marsh. (Cole is the Terry Fox School student who lost his life in Lynn Canyon.)
