The phrase “Live Like Soy” originated with Sawyer’s best friend’s family. Cole and Sawyer had been great friends for years, so Cole took it pretty hard when Sawyer died during their 4th grade year. Cole’s dad, Donny, was trying to help him through the loss of his best friend.
Donny pulled up the David Price interview to show Cole an example of someone who lost a dear friend and chose to carry his memory with him in some of his proudest and hardest moments. Cole decided on the phrase “live like soy ” to remind him to always have fun, be brave and enjoy every moment. – Rachelle
