Theirs is a great love story. A story that led to a family of nine amazing children, 28 grandchildren and even more great-grandchildren.





A love letter from France to Coe…..

Just remember that
I think more of you than
any other girl in the world
and it won’t be too long
before we’ll all be back and
I can prove it to you
in more ways than

Til then darling I’ll
just say goodbye and
may God watch over
my pretty little dark eyes
until once again I can
hold her in my arms
and say that-she’s mine,
mine mine-all mine.

Your G.I. Joe
