    I've worked with Colton's "Gaga" (Toni) for 2 years now, and one thing I looked forward to when talking to Toni were the wonderful updates on Colton. How Colton's >insert holiday here< was, how Colton was doing in school, especially at his new school (these updates were my favorite because he seemed to be thriving). Toni would light up when she talked about Colton, I could hear it in her voice in every call, and in turn, I would light up. From what I know, Colton had a smile that could turn a bad day into a good one, and was a general happy boy despite any set backs and obstacles he faced. I know we never met, Colton, but I'll miss your updates both big and small, and watching you grow up through your Gaga's social media. May you rest in eternal peace and sunshine. Keep smiling down at your family and all the lives you've touched. To the Ferguson-Linton family, when the sun shines, and you feel the warmth spread across your face know that Colton is there. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
