Judy and Lindsey,
You and Coy were such big influences on my life as a teenager. I have so many wonderful memories of staying at your house and going to horse shows. I tell stories of those times often. My thoughts and love are with you now and I am sorry to hear of your loss.

Judy and family,
So sorry to hear about Mr Coy passing. He was always one of my favorite people. I still remember him saying he got to be 90 and in such good shape by eating a handful of peanuts every day. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all
