Bio and Links
Bio Photo ♥I am so glad I found Find A Grave! ♥ I was born a Coots in Pineville(Bell County)KY, and am married to a Tankersley from Crab Orchard, KY.
I want to thank you all personally for leaving flower memorials for my Mom & Dad and all the others, too. It gives me comfort to visit all the ones who have passed from this life and are waiting on the other side. Have a beautiful day in ♥JESUS♥ today and everyday! I also want to thank DC for sponsoing my Mom and Dad.
If I don't make it to your memorials each day, I apologize. As time is not on our side. Please forgive me! But I visit as many as I can when I can. I love my many friends here on Find A Grave. God bless each and every one of you, And thank each of you for visiting my page when I am not able to do so. God bless, Darlene♥

One of my favorite sayings is:
Hope for the best,
Accept the worst,
And take whatever comes.


Psalm 40:11
Withold not thy tender mercies from me, O Lord: let thy loving kindness and thy truth continually preserve me.

Psalm 40:16
Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee; let such as love thy salvation say continually, The Lord be magnified.

This song was a favorite of my mom's just before she passed away and I think she knew she was going to pass away♥

I'll Be Waiting For You

When I face my last trial and take my last stand
When I finish my course here below
If the path that I'm traveling should lead to death's door
There is one thing I'd like you to know

I'll be waiting for you over yonder
I'll keep searching 'til you make it in
It will not be complete until you're there
with me
I'll be waiting 'til you reach that land

It was God's will that brought us together
in life
And gave us a great family
I'd like to view heaven's beauty with you by
my side
I'll be waiting 'til your face I see

I'll be waiting for you over yonder
I'll keep searching 'til you make it in
It will not be complete until you're there
with me
I'll be waiting 'til you reach that land

My newest poem!

♥My Dear Parents♥

Dearest mom, dearest dad,
I'm so overwhelmed with sad.
No more phone calls like before,
No more your shadows to grace my door.

So many days I feel you near,
I look around and you're not there.
A lonesome feeling it is for me,
For your faces no more do I see.

I have your pictures to gaze upon,
To remember the days that are long gone.
Such a sadness I feel within my heart,
Since the time back when you both had to part.

But each day brings us closer to when,
We all shall see each other again.
A glorius reunion it shall be,
To be together again for eternity.

♥A Hug From Heaven♥

When you feel a gentle breeze
Caress you when you sigh,
It's a hug sent from heaven
From a loved up on high.

If a soft and tender raindrop
Lands upon your nose,
They've added a small kiss
As fragile as a rose.

If a song you hear fills you
With a feeling of sweet love,
It's a hug sent from heaven
From someone special up above.

If you awaken in the morning
To a bluebird's chirping song,
It's music sent from heaven
To cheer you all day long.

If tiny little snowflakes
Land upon your face,
It's a hug sent from heaven
Trimmed with angel lace.

So keep the joy in your heart
If you're lonely my dear friend
Hugs that are sent from heaven
A broken heart will mend.

RE: Timothy Purnell
Hi Carolyn, Thanks for the info. Ive had a few friends of ours asking to keep them informed about him. Thats why i have him on my page for anyone who came by my page would see and visit him. That way even though he didnt have a service or memorial that day, he still had friends thinking of him and leaving flowers the day he was buried. A couple others had him on their page too. One friend was wondering if they figured out his death date to add to his memorial and also a couple of them asked if there was a obit. I wasnt sure cause i think the family does the obit.
I seen you had been sick. I pray you are feeling better soon.
Thanks again.

Hugs, Missie

RE: Hello...
So sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well, but I had been missing you & wanted to check in. That must be an ordeal with moving also. I would like to move to a more convenient neighborhood, but even when you have movers that [do all the work], it is still a tiring situation. May you feel better soon. I just got over [something], sore throat bad, for about 11 days. Took so much medicine it was making me sick. But I did live thru it grudgingly. I wish you luck in your new home & I know it will take much adjusting.

If I neglected to wish you a "happy Easter", I'm doing it now, belatedly. Hope your day was nice.
Best regards Carolyn & have a nice evening.

BTW Thanks for your message, nice hearing from you.
