  2. Hi…I am so sorry to hear about Coma. Ive been talking about her a lot and have clients from LA and was just saying it would sure be nice to see my grandmothers last sister again.

  5. Richard, Jerry & Peewee, and Esthay Grandkids, I was so sad to hear of Aunt Comas passing. I have so many fond memories of Aunt Coma and all the good times spent in Evangeline with her. She always had a smile and made you feel loved when around her. She was loved by us all and will be truly missed. She has outlived all of the Esthay Seniors and will now spend eternity with all of our loved ones that have gone on to Heaven. God Bless you all and I wish I could have been there for the funeral.
