Gina Buehner – Cole’s mom forever

Share the joy



Thank you for visiting Cole’s Hope Foundation’s Blog! My name is Gina Buehner and I am Cole’s mom, forever. I am the mother of two beautiful boys, Blake, who will soon celebrate his 21st birthday, and Cole, who is now our guardian angel. On October 21, 2014, we lost one of our extraordinary sons, Cole, when his life was taken while he was riding a motorcycle and another driver failed to yield at an intersection.

While we struggle to fight our way through this nightmare, I have found sharing my thoughts, Cole’s story, and his passion to help others to be therapeutic. Cole’s Hope Foundation was created to keep Cole’s spirit of giving others HOPE alive. I encourage you to read all about Cole’s inspirational spirit and our reason for creating this foundation on our website.  We will continue  his passion for the rest of our lives. We will offer HOPE, to those who need it most.

I hope that as you read my blog posts, you might smile, laugh, and find inspiration for whatever circumstance you might be going through yourself.

Live life to the fullest,

Gina Buehner

Cole’s mom forever.

  1. My heart is with you even though I don’t know you or your family but my kids know you and your family. Your words hit the heart and I shed a tear each blog I read but thank you for sharing your wonderful stories with us because it keeps us parents realizing that our joy could be taken at any time. Cole IS lucky to have you as his mom.

    1. Thank you so much Stacy. I recently read a saying that said “People say you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone. Truth is, you knew what you had, you just never thought you’d lose it” – author unknown, and it really hit home. As parents, we expect to outlive our children and the grief that comes with losing a child is unimaginable. I find comfort in blogging and sharing Cole’s story. I am glad that you enjoy reading my blogs, I just want to keep Cole’s spirit alive and inspire people to live life to the fullest, love their children and family, and make memories with them. Thank you so much for your kind words, that truly makes me smile.

  2. Maggie and I were just talking about the time spent the night at our house and Josh and Cole swore there was a ghost in the house !!!! It was soooooo funny !!!

  5. Mrs.Buehner today seeing you stand on your 2 feet by one of Coles Bestfriends was amazing and incredible and very inspiring I don’t think I could do with what you have to struggle with but as Cole being your guardian that you have his power and he makes sure to put you in good hands like you said you arnt just a principal but you are a mother as well and since I’ve gone to Fox I kinda think of us all being a family and I’m glad you shared that with all of us that touched all of our hearts in a lot of ways to know that someone cares

  13. First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how
    you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas
    out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?

    1. Hello Byron, thank you so much! I can only blog when my mind is telling a story, it comes to me and I begin writing. The times when I sit down to blog and my mind is all over the place, I step away from my computer. Sometimes it’s a song I hear, a commercial I see, or a post I read that inspires me to write. I haven’t been blogging for too long so I have so much to say. I’m just kind of blogging as I go, to keep my readers in the loop on my journey, how I am surviving and how my faith keeps me standing. I hope some of this might help, I really don’t have any hints except maybe walk away from the computer until it comes to you. I wish you the very best!

    imminent post. Thanks 1,000,000 and please carry on the enjoyable work.

  17. I think that what you typed was very logical.

    But, consider this, what if you were to write a awesome post title?
    I ain’t suggesting your information is not solid., however
    suppose you added a post title to possibly get a person’s attention? I mean Coles Hope Foundation Blog Site
    | Blogging from honesty, for inspiration and HOPE is a little vanilla.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news titles to get people interested.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get people interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your
    posts a little livelier.
