we finally had Cole's
Eagle Court of Honor
It took some doin' talking Cole into holding one in the first place.
But we have ways of persuasion
and finally he submitted allowing us to
go forward with the ceremony.
It was very nice.
A lot of family and friends came.
Cole had two mentor pins to give out.
One went to Eric Eaves,
who couldn't be there but we accepted the invitation on his behalf.
The other mentor pin went to his sister,
for keeping him on the right track and for putting up with him
when he was a ding bat.
She was surprised.
Surprised because she didn't even know
the significance of receiving a mentor pin
and she was surprised Cole acknowledged her hard work
to keep him from a life of crime.
Cole presented me with a dozen roses,
