Linda, so sorry to have learned of your moms passing. I met her at your bridal shower. She was sweet and warm. Not sure if you remember me because it has been years (could have been your sister/in-law ha!). Guess Joe has been married a long time now! Amazing! I hope you & Matt are well!

We were truly blessed to have you and Jim as neighbors for about 25 years. Leaving was very difficult as I know we would miss you and Jim terribly. I thank God you and Jim were there whenever I needed something. God Bless You and your family. Love you always Carolyn & Jay

We are so saddened by the passing of your mom and are sending you our deepest sympathies and prayers. Once again, we wish we were closer and could be there for you during this difficult time, but know we are sending you all of our love and hugs. We hope that knowing your parents are together, watching over all of you, brings you some comfort and peace. Just reading all the memories people have posted of your mom and dad, hearing your stories of them over the years, and having my own few experiences with them when the kids were little, truly makes me wish I had had the chance to know them better. Even still, they have touched my life by way of raising an amazing daughter, whom I am lucky enough to call my friend! Love you Joan....I hope you know I am always here, despite our physical distance, whenever you need to cry, or laugh, or just talk. xoxo Love, Barbara, Walter, Chris, Nick, Danielle & Jacqueline ❤️

Dearest Aunt Dot...My fondest memories of my favorite "Aunt Dot" begin in my childhood when youwere my personal version of Mary Tyler Moore, appearing at the end of yourwork day dressed to the hilt in the highest of heels and sporting the classiest of"Big City" outfits. I determined right then and there that I wanted to be just like you when I grew up, including snagging a tall, handsome guy with a great sense of humor for my life's mate.The years have flown by since then, but I recall delightful memories of the cozy Cape Cod with the perfect front stoop on which to play paperdolls and jacks, and a grassy yard in which to share family barbeques, celebrations, and summer splash sessions in the pool. A frequent stop on Van Buren Street to visit with you and "Unc" was an absolute necessity, whether on roller skates, strolling to or from town, or biking from the library. I remember "catching up on life" in your cool basement while you tackled a huge pile of ironing.Next there are the shared memories for Bob and I of strolling the Boardwalk at Jones Beach on a hot summer's eve, laughing through "Will Rogers Follies" on Broadway, playing California Tour Guides during way too seldom a visit from you, and basking in the enjoyment of patio chats on desert evenings in Sun City West. We are reveling in happy memories, funny stories, and the Love of a remarkable favorite Aunt. Our memories here are cherished because we always found joy on your doorstep, peace in every room and unconditional Love in every corner. Our lives have been blessed and enriched by yourendless Love. We will love you forever, will miss you beyond that, and willalways hold you close at heart. Be at Peace! All our Love, Barb & Bob
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

What a gift I was given when Bill introduced me to the wonderful Coughlin clan. Laughter (to the point of tears), love in abundance, kindness and generosity at every turn. Through tough times and good times, nothing seemed to change too much - the thread of love and family seemed to bring out the very best in all of you. Aunt Dot, your laughter is something I will hear at every recollection of you, this actually holds true of Uncle Jimmy as well. Selfishly, Bill and I both will miss you and Uncle Jimmy, your marriage and the love you shared is a beautiful legacy. We wish you peace. Bill & Lesleh Wright

Mom,We were hoping to have more time with you before you joined dad, but we are comforted knowing that you are where you want to be. Your 62 year marriage was an example of love and companionship and the true meaning of soulmates. Your generous nature and strength is something that we all aspire to. You always put family first and we will be forever grateful for all of the wonderful memories we have. We will love and miss you always. Love, Joan, Jim, Jaclyn, and Jennifer

My dear Aunt Dot...You & Uncle Jimmy have always taught me that it is the small moments we ultimately should treasure. You have never missed a birthday card to your great niece (with several address changes I might add!), 4th of July parades, conversing around Lin's table, hershey kisses in your candy dish, hanging out in your patio on a hot summer evening....Couldn't have been luckier to have had the both of you in my life. Love always, Jen & Family

Mom, our hearts are broken, but we know you are with Dad now. You both were the perfect role models, and you will live on in all of us. God rest your beautiful soul. We will forever love and miss you. Thanks for selflessly sacrificing so much for us. Please tell Dad we think of him everyday. Now we have our very own angels in heaven. Rest peacefully Mom. Life will never be the same. Love you always, Lin and Matt
