Coye will truly be missed as a North Lawrence fixture. I enjoyed our conversations about Billy and loved it when they used to go for walks or ride bikes and come by my house. I am sure Billy misses his grandpa and all the times they shared.
He was a busy man that has earned his time of peace. Bless his memory.
