Condolence & Memory Journal

Grandma Coffey, I hope you Rest In Peace. Thank you for teaching me about what a hard working women is. I will always cherish our times together as I was growing up. I remember our times going to Shaws together, planting pumpkins and sunflowers in your yard, watching Julia Child so loud on the television you could hear it outside, writing recipes, and watching you crochet, doing word puzzles, going to the play grounds and learning how to ride a bike. I know all you ever wanted for me was to be a strong intelligent independent person, and I will continue to be those things. I am glad to have our found memories together to cherish. May you Rest In Peace.
