Our little hero, with his fine hair, was born on July 8, 2008 to Cory Michael and Rachel Lee (Ent) Dufrene in Batesville. He fought every day of his life and changed all of our lives in ways we could never imagine. Cole was the toughest boy we ever met, but greeted us all with that infectious smile.
