To all my Coggins, Coleman cousins, I am so saddened by "Aunt" Virginia's, as I always called her, passing. As most of those in the Brockman side of her family she had a very long and loving life. She was a sweetheart and my Dad, Carlyle, always thought of her as one of his favorite cousins. God be with all of you at this sad time, but we all know there was a wonderful Heavenly reunion when she went home......
