“What’s next, Colter?”
Carolyn Woodruff asked her son a simple question that parents ask children after they finish a project. Colter Dallman wasn’t a child anymore but a grown man with a weight upon his shoulders that he could no longer carry. Carolyn asked her only son what was next on his life’s journey at Christmas time last year.
He had a short walk to go before that journey ended Jan. 4 when he left his car parked in an obvious location, walked through falling snowflakes in a pasture until he finally stopped trudging through the snow because of extreme cold.
