Thom - I was terribly saddened to read about your Mom's passing. I will always remember how warm, funny and giving she was when we visited. I wish you and your family well and have you all in my thoughts and prayers. My deepest condolences! Take care, Scott

Looking through the obituaries in the paper today and I saw Ninfa Coy. I said to myself I wonder if this could be Ninfa Baptiste. How many Ninfas are there in KC. Well, sure enough. I had always wondered what had become of the family when we all moved away from Armadale (KCK). I lived across the street from my Grandfather and Ninfa, Henry and her Mom Rafaila lived behind my grandfather. We always had fun playing in my grandfather's yard except for a couple times. Ninfa was not afraid of anything. We even got into fights and she always won. Once she got so mad at me that she threw a brick (perfect aim) and hit me in the head. In grade school (John J. Ingalls) and in the same grade, I had to dance the Mexican Hat dance with her. Ninfa was good at this dance as her and Henry danced it at fiestas. Needless to say, she had to teach and lead me in this dance. Oh so many memories. I wish I had found her and visited with her before this. My deepest condolences .

Ninfa was a very special person. She always saw the good in people and was always happy when we were growing up. I remember the Sunday afternoons at Grandmas house and she would be outside playing with us always making sure no one would get hurt. She was also the one who watched to make sure everyone was being nice to each other. She was a great dancer. She truly was a wonderful woman and I’ll miss her wonderful smile and the happiness she exuded. Rest In Peace Cuz!!! See you one day again.

You'd drive us to get ice cream... and the thing I'll always remember....you laughed at all my silky jokes! I loved being around you! We were all so lucky to have had you in our lives! God bless you!
