My mother, Mary Helen (Miller) Bewley attended McKinney High School with Mr. Coffman. I remember that every time I ever went to the florist with her the two of them would have a quick visit to catch up on friends from those days. Had Alzheimer's not robbed Mother of her memories I'm sure she would want to send her sympathy to the family ... so I am doing so for her. Margaret Bewley, April 30, 2007 Dear Coffman Family, I am so sorry to hear of George's passing. He was always one of my favorite people.He made many of my high school corsages and flower arrangements. He was always happy and smiling and just made you feel good to visit with him.I think we are all kin back there somewhere ! I send my sympathies to all of you.
