Deputy Sheriff Coker,
On today, the 10th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army as a member of the 82nd Airborne “All American” Division. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Airborne All The Way!

Seven years ago today God called you home. The hole in my heart is just as big and raw as it was the night your fellow officers came to tell me you were gone. I know you stand guard and watch over the LEO's as well as the rest of your family. I love and miss you son.

It's hard to believe we are coming up on four years. I still think about you all the time. Most recently when I saw a preview for the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie coming out. I quit doing my haunted porch on Halloween. It just wasn't the same as it was with you that first year. I miss you bro. Keep watch over us, I know you will!

Not a day goes by that you are not in my thoughts. Sutton is playing football this year. Mark Jr is playing the big drum in marching band. Each first that has come along emphasizes the fact that you are no longer with us. This past Friday I went to the mall with Shane and Gracie. After I dropped them off I realized that was just one more thing I would not get to do with you. I still have a big hole in my heart. I miss you so much. Everyone tells me it will get easier with time but so far it hasn't. I still expect you to walk through the door with that big smile asking what's for dinner. It is so hard to believe two years have passed and it will soon be three. I love you son and I am so proud of the wonderful man you became.

Not a day goes by that we don't miss you and remember you. What a wonderful son you were and a great blessing to all that had the pleasure of knowing you. A friend to many. You truly touched us all, even in your very short life, some without ever realizing it. I will see you again one day, and it won't be too soon. A special thank you for watching over us while serving and protecting the community that we live in.

Love, Daddy.

In disbelief about the situation. When we were at Fort Bragg as Parachute Riggers, he was always a person that could keep you laughing in a good mood while you deal with stressful situations. He will be truly missed.
