As new inlaws to the Coffey family Judy was a shining star. For the short we've known her it seems we've known her all our lives. That's the kind of person she was to us. We hope that this will not be a time of mourning but a time of celebration. We'll see her again. Just as our daughter Gloria was an angel to her she was an angel to many and especially her grandson CrxFC. Rest in Peace Judy Coffey.
