I'm sorry to miss Co's memorial celebration. It would have been a privilege to fellowship with you and thank God for her faith, gentle and strong spirit, and servant's heart. I miss my loved ones who are not here, but I'm so thankful for the hope of heaven with no more tears or suffering. Now we see through the mirror dimly, but the thought of seeing Jesus and restoration as He has planned is so powerful. God bless and be with all of you as you miss her and adjust to a big loss in your family. I know God will be with you in very special ways. Love in Christ, Marti

I loved Co, and even though I have not seen her in years, I will always love and miss her. I had the joy to serve with her in the children’s department at BSF for many years. I consider her my spiritual mom, she helped me as a young christian to grow closer to a God and she was a great example of how to serve God Well. She will forever be in my heart! Fay Lawler

Co lived a life of servanthood and showing how to serve God. I was fortunate to receive some of her treasured notes. Her friendship and prayers blessed me beyond description. Heaven has gained a faithful servant.
