"Threads of Love" Donor Memorial Quilt: Quilt 23
Coleman Allen Bostick Jr
2-03-51 to 12-03-08
Allen, as he was known to his family and Coleman "Cole" as he was known in later years, after his father's death, was a loving, caring person with a wonderful sense of humor. He gave in death as he gave in life, always ready to help someone in need. Because of him two people are seeing with his corneas, fifty to one hundred burn victims are helped because of his tissue donation and two people were given his leg bones to help them walk again.
The symbols surrounding him on the quilt patch are things he enjoyed most in life. He loved playing his guitar, had his own band in high school, and could play country, Rock and Roll and was mastering the Classical sound. He enjoyed playing a round of golf whenever he had some free time. He was a Master 2nd Dan in the martial art of Tae Kwon Doe and ran his own school for 5 years having many of his students win trophies at several competitions, which he proudly displayed in the school window. The Dove symbolizes the novel he was writing "Keeper of the Doves" which was not quite finished. He was also a member of an international flying combat game on Sim-outhouse.com and his call name was "DOS GHOST", hence the ghost above the plane. He flew with a Canadian team and although they never met in person the tribute they posted on the game and the video they made was wonderful and helped us get through a most difficult and painful time.
Allen is sadly missed but will be "Forever in our Hearts".
