Acknowledgement
Perhaps you sent a lovely card,
Or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent a funeral spray,
If so we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words,
As any friend could say.
Perhaps you were not there at all,
Just thought of us that day.
Whatever you did to console our hearts,
We thank you so much whatever the part.
The Huntley Family
Special thank you to the Whitfield family for your
thoughtfulness and support during this time of need.

Wilma Jean Coleman-Cooper was born on April 10, 1958, at

Mother
From you I began, the start of all that I am.
With you I took my first steps,
to you I expressed my first desires.
Because of you I know right from wrong
and why they are so. You showed me how to
laugh and explained why we cry.
All of this with love unconditional.
And when it came time for me
to spread my wings, you let me go
with tears of happiness and fear,
but with words of love.
For this I will always be thankful,
for it is because of you
that I have become who I am,
and from you I began.
Author unknown Sisters
A sister is a precious treasure,
her love and kindness know no measure.
She laughs your joys and weeps your tears,
the bond grows stronger through the years.
She knows your ups, she knows your downs.
She knows your smiles, she knows your frowns.
Your secret she holds just like a treasure,
she builds your confidence with pleasure.
No matter how low, she helps you rise,
no matter how sad, she makes you smile
No matter how deep, she shares your pain,
Remember its just a sister thing.

Dear Claudia,
Though your smile is gone
forever, and your hand
I cannot touch, I still have
many memories of the one I
love so much.
Your memory is my keepsake with which I will never
part. God has you in his keeping. I have you in my
heart.
Sadly missed but never forgotten.
Love you,
Mom
