    Mike, Greg and your families, I’m so sorry for the loss of your Mother. The only comfort I know to offer you is knowing she is at peace and with our family in Heaven. So no longer is in any pain and is smiling on us all. I still called her Aunt Mary, kind and soft spoken, I will miss her and never forget her.
    Dad a few years back told me the tricks and jokes he would play on his sisters (Aunt Donna and Your Mom (Aunt Mary). I hope I never forget the memories we had at a few of the Coburn family reunions. I’m not say good bye but I will see you someday when the time I right for me. Dad told me all with the tears he was holding back.
