Linda and Nancy I remember your mother when coming to your home when we were in school together she was a lovely lady. I enjoyed seeing her at the fair and enjoyed catching up with her. Sharing in your sorrow but remember she is always close as she always in your heart.

Dear Coffman family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Donna. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also.
