Memories Timeline


  1. Ann and family:  Remember your family so well from our days in Evergreen when you were a student at Wilmot Elementary.   I remember your Dad's special pride in using old barn wood on the walls of his office in the Evergreen home.  I last saw you many years ago at the mortuary in Golden when you and your Dad were greeting friends of your Mom.   The Coffey family has always had a special place in my heart.  Peace to you and your family.

  2. I am curious if this is the Mr. Coffee who owned Kettle Fried Chicken in east Denver.

    I worked for them and they were such kind nice folks. If so I'd like to say I am sorry

    for his passing. He was so pleasant and treated the wait staff with kindness. He

    never raised his voice as I recall. I was 18 at the time. I am now 83! God bless him and the

    family. May he rest in peace.

  3. Jack was one of Mom's best friends at Sunrise (Joan Merrill), and was his next door neighbor before moving to the memory care unit. He was such a nice man, and will deeply be missed there. His many pictures around Sunrise will always bring a smile to every ones face. I'm so sorry for your loss.
