She was my big sister, since she was 4 years older by the time she was in High school . I know that me and my twin sister Renee were just a big pain in the butt.I remember her playing with us on the beach at Tybee Island, Ga. She liked to bury us in the sand when she was 8 and we were 4. I remember see her coming down the stairs in her prom dress, she looked like a princess to me. I remember taking her to Bowling Green to start college.I cried all the way back home when we left her there. I just did not understand how my parents could just leave her there all by her self. But she came home talking about her new friends the Coe's, then she married Bob Coe and soon made mean Aunt. When I came to Glasgow to go to the Glasgow School for PN, she came to the dorm and took me out to eat to help me not be homesick. She built me up when I was down and worried about passing the state boards. She loved her family, Bob,Jl and Brian and of course Betty. She loved living in Red Boling Springs Ten. She was the take charge person when our parents died, dealing with their affairs going to the court house so many trips.Because she had been sick for so many years, I knew she was not going to get better but when she left us to join Bob. I was just not as ready as I thought I was. I went to Bob's facebook page and posted the picture of the 2 of them young , happy both well This how I want to remember them so I will. I will miss her so much, she was my big sister!!!
