Oh my goodness, where do I start? The only name that I knew is Cokee. Everytime I seen her, I ran to her open arms while she squatted to hug me and then pick me up to kiss all over my molly face. I always would just stare at her because i thought she was sooo beautiful, like a movie star.

What greater love is there than our Heavenly Father and the love of a mother. So know that your mother will be missed on earth but she is in heaven where love will never end but suffering is over. May you be encourage by the love you all shared with her and each other!!!

Coketta, I've always called her that. Wow will I miss her! Everyone loved to see her smile. I loved her smile too and also not being able to hear her laugh will be such an absent to my ears. I loved her probably more than she knew. I would ask Nita "All the Time" about my Cooketta. I love Nita so much. we go back a long way with lots of fun and laughter included. It was like we were "Rich" everyday, High off life! I will truely miss "My Coketta". Much Love Pam Henley Fisher.

I will always remember your beautiful face and smile. The first time that I met you and Lewis was at my mother's funeral. I wondered who was that beautiful attractive young woman and was told that you were my first cousin. I wish that I had gotten to know you better. Time is so fleeting that you always put off what you should have done and I was no exception with you. I will always remember your beautiful face and smile and will be forever touched to have had you as a close relative. Rest in peace Cokey.

I will always have pleasant thoughts of my cousin Cokey and will miss not viewing your beautiful face. I will always regret not spending more time getting to know you better. Time is so
fleeting and I thought that you would be here forever. I remember the first time that I saw you and Lewis at my mothers funeral and I wondered who was that beautiful woman . Only to be told that you were my first cousin . You touched my life in a wonderful way. Rest in peace Cokey.

Mrs Cokey as we knew her, was an aunt to us. Her and mom (Spoon) were forces to be reckoned with when it came to a bowling ball or partys in the home. They made sure we all felt loved, special and important. Even before the movie the Help came out, she was the one with the words of encouragement for us all. Always know for the beautiful smile and never a harsh word did I ever hear her say. So today, I speak directly to her as she sits in her new mansion on the other side:
Faithful
F- For always being kind to me and loving me. Never judging but believing in me when I didn't believe in myself.
A – Always giving of yourself and to my mother. Dear , true and honest friendship. Our home was a better place because you were her friend.
I – Intelligent in the manner to which you would give and impart wisdom and knowledge. There greatest one being to love and keep a smile on your face even through the end.
T- Tough on us when you needed to be but it was all still done in love and kindness
H- Hugs came for free. They were the entry way to your bosom and a safe place to cry and know my stories would go no further.
F- Friend to my mother for many years. So much so to the point that I didn't realize you were not my real aunt until I was older and now for me I still don't believe it. Forever connected
U- Unconditionally loving. When I messed up you didn't treat us any different than if we had accomplished something to make you proud. This made me want to do and be better.
L- Loving as Christ loved us all. This will assist in carrying me through the rest of my life.

My heart aches as I miss you. In adulthood we often drift away into our own worlds, I regretfully hate that I drifted too far away from you. I am forever and eternally grateful for God allowing Ann and Bernita to share you with me. We are forever their sisters and they will never be alone. Love you Auntie. Miss you more.

To the lady that pulled me out into the middle of the living room floor to dance...cause she said thats what I was gonna do!!! Always loved hearing "Momma" quotes from Bernita. She was a joy for the short time I knew her. Thoughts are always with you Nita and Ann.

Don, brother man, stay in the faith.Cokey goodness and smiles will be every much miss. At least we have the time to get to know her, so now she at peace, no pain, just rest. So rest my sister "YOU HAVE EARN IT."
