Bio and Links
Bio Photo ♥I am so glad I found Find A Grave! ♥ I was born a Coots in Pineville, Bell County, KY. I am married to Ray 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. I also want to thank DC for sponsoring my Mom and Dad. 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 ♥YHWH♥ today and everyday!
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. If you find any mistakes in my memorials, PLEASE let me know, Thank you & God bless, Carolyn Darlene, AKA Sissy ♥

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


Psalm 40:11
Withhold not thy tender mercies from me, O YHWH: 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 YHWH 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 here.
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 in Heaven.
A glorious reunion it shall be,
To be together again for eternity.

By: Carolyn Darlene Coots Tankersley

♥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.

Hi Carolyn.

My name is Ashley Hagood (Coots). I would love to talk more with you, if you'd be interested. My email is

My grandfather is Bud Coots. He is your grandfather, Andrew Coots's brother. I was hoping you might have known my papaw Thomas Garrett Coots, your 2nd cousin. I have so many questions about him and want to know about others in our family.

Thank you for all that you've done on here! It's beautiful!

Thank you for adding a picture on Joseph's memorial. It is so appropriate. I always felt bad that I could not find the right picture to add to his memorial. Thank you again.

No worries! Thank you for updating his profile! No need to transfer, I'm not on here often enough, and you've been doing such a fabulous job! Merry Christmas!
