Ruby and family, please know that I am thinking about you. Mother's (Elaine's) mind and health will not allow her to be there with you, but I know if she was able to she would. I have heard many stories about "Coy and Ruby" and "Harold and Audine" all of my life. She loves you all dearly! Coy was a very sweet man!

Ruby our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I did not get to spend much time with Coy. We were living in different places. You are fortunate to have lived this long that I had not killed you, Ruby on a motor scooter many years ago! I am sorry I cannot be there due to my own health. You are in my thoughts. Bill

Coy came to the beauty shop with Ruby every week and got kisses from all of us. He would bring me a baggie full of chocolate candy every other week. This man was so special to all of the girls at the shop and he will be missed very much.RIP Coy, we all love you at Head 2Toe Salon❤️🙏🏻
