I have only known Joe since David and I married 28 years ago . He was always so kind hearted wonderful person . David was telling me the other day that when Joe would come over to there house when he was a little boy Joe would take him riding in his hot ride car and he loved it. I’m so happy we went to see Dolly and Joe to weeks ago. We had such a good visit. We love you Joe and Dolly Copper. And Joe will will be forever our hearts.

I was married to Joe Cooper since High School. I was so lucky to be with him. We had our times, but you have to look at it as a challenge. You married this man because you loved him. So you do what it takes to work it out. We were married 57 years, almos 58 in 3 months. I have never regretted marrying this man. We shared together, loved, cried, laughed all through it. I will meet him in Heaven one day and continue to love him as I have since 1961. Rest in Peace my love, I will see there.
