    I will always remember her barrel racing with her horse when she was a teenager, she was so good at it. Letting me use her car when I was a teenager, being there for me my whole life. When she was in the Air Force, I stayed with her for awhile in Bossier City, she took me out and we had fun. I am missing her so much and will always miss her and love her and she knew she was loved by all that knew her. We will meet again someday, Rest well my sister with family that has gone before. I love you, Sharon

    Rest in love Aunt Judy. You were loved by so many, an amazing aunt, friend, wife, mom, grandma, sister, daughter and many more roles. You will be missed by so many. You’re no longer in pain and flying high with loved ones already passed, including your 2 sons and your Daddy. ❤❤

    Judy Coker was one of the smartest, most tenacious human beings I ever encountered in my life, a true force of Nature worthy of admiration and respect. I know she was certainly dedicated to her family, and a willing to do whatever it took to advance their agenda. I am very sad to get news of her passing late, but pleased to read she left us surrounded by those who knew and loved her most. No one could ask for more in this age, thankfully she was able to do that, many families have been robbed of that basic human right of late. God bless each and every you during this time of adjustment. Please know that just because I am not close to hand these days doesn’t mean I don’t think of you folks often, and care for you. You know in short order we will all be moving on past all this mortal business, and the real living will commence under much better circumstances. If I can ever be of any service, please feel free to holler, the kids know how to rattle my cage. Hang in there.

    Mom, I miss you every day. So much more then you woukd have ever imagined. There are so many challenges and times I realize the stuff you accomplished effortlessly. You are so smart mom. I wish you could see the pride in saying that’s my mom, grandma, wife, sister, daughter, friend, or person who helped me out even let’s hope people know asking Judy was the thought thing because you just knew where to find out everything. Now I look and look and look for answers mom Where do I find them? I need you here

    Hey mom, it’s Christmas Eve. I know you are here. Somewhere. It is so difficult to do this without you. It is not possible to have a Merry Christmas this year. Our family don’t know how to “family” without you. I remember our 1 gift rule when I was a kid. Evolving to we celebrate early bc you gating telling us no. Well mom I keep thinking you will show up or come downstairs. You don’t. I try to Remeber stuff you/ told me; but I miss your voice and regret that I didn’t focus on? Making Memories, amends, and bonds. You are so much more part of each of us then you knew. I love you. I hope each person who sees this has a merry Christmas. It was one of the holidays my mom enjoyed. A chance to get her kids around. She knew time is precious
