    We were so blessed to have Homer and his family for such good friends for over sixty years. We have done many things together, like working, taking trips and going to ball games. This has given us many wonderful memories. We feel like we are family. We will truly miss him. We pray that God will continue to bless his family. Love, Tom & Ellen

    Mr. Coggin was such a nice man and he will be missed. I especially remember him during my teenage days. He and Helen were very supportive of the youth group at church I was in. As a fundraiser the group played basketball games, once even playing the Holy Smokes!, the team from Channel Four. Mr. Coggin was our cheerleader and we called him Boom Boom Coggin!

    It is my hope that your sadness, Helen, Michael, Derrick and the grandchildren will soon turn into wonderful memories.
