    Though we were far apart living across the country from each other, I have always known Coco was there for me. She did not judge. She didn’t often call because… life. But when she did, or when I called her, she was always completely THERE. My heart is shattered. I know Mama met her at the gate, and there was a party in Heaven, and Aunt Coco is now sitting at the feet of Jesus.
