Long Live Kohl RIP even i talk to him for a while he was a great guy a great heart. He was a talented soccer player along with his brothers Branden & Austin. Kohl was a very bright kid and i know that he is in a better place with the man that I call Jesus ,God ,My Lord. If Kohl was on lived long enough he would've been a great husband. And have a wonderful life. Long Live Kohl and his Spirit on happiness ;) See You When I get to heaven
