  • I am the grandaughter of your sister Constance Lillian (Mollie) Cole (nee Fruze). I have been through the area where you fought and died. I prayed for you and lit a candle in a church in Belgium. Know that you are not forgotten. Thank you for giving your life for our freedom. Rest in peace. Ann Cumpstone
