You were the greatest grandmother that any one could have. You will missed by many. You were a great grandmother, daughter, mother, sister, cousin and much more. You are now one of the most beautiful angels heaven has ever had. I guess its true God only takes the best cause he took you. But i know your in heaven with Papaw, Jay, and Memaw and many others that have gone. I wish you were here to see Hannah, Maddie, and T.J. grow into the best people they can become. But i know there was a reason you had to go when you did. I will always rember the good times and memories we have together. I love you mamaw. Have fun with Papaw. Rest in peace Marie Hudson Coffey aka (Mamaw Coffey).

Dear Bestie, Through the years I’ve watched you pick up a cross a hundred times, and walk like the mountain beneath you wasn’t crumbling. I have watched you take my burden's and problems from my back and carry them as if they were yours. You would take another step, stumble and say “It’s not about me but you.” I am absolutely broken open with a sense of compassion for you, a thankfulness I cannot express with words. You are a woman who was a mighty prayer warrior in my life, a woman filled with love for everyone, a woman who shared so much wisdom and advice, a woman I could call anytime of the day or night, etc. I am blessed to have you in my life – My Best friend – My Hero – You were the Wind beneath My Wings !!!
I hoped I’ve learned a thing or two. Maybe gone but never forgotten. Some sweet day I will see you again until then I love you and miss you. Later …......

Mom, Marie Coffey, You will be greatly missed. Words can't describe how much we LOVE you and how we enjoyed hearing you bring out the Word of God in such a way that even a little child could understand it. Your life portrayed JESUS CHRIST in such a way that anyone who met you knew that you had a Love of God that was open to anyone who wanted to receive it. You were the same LOVING CARING WOMAN OF GOD EVERYWHERE YOU WENT!!! THANK YOU MOM FOR TEACHING AND LEADING US IN THE WAYS OF THE LORD!!! WE WILL MEET YOU IN HEAVEN SOME SWEET DAY! WE LOVE AND MISS YOU, YOUR SON AND DAUGHTER ROGER AND KATIE POARCH!
