    Don and Martha Copeland were a sweet, loving, compassionate couple who always smiled and made you feel like family. Their love for each other and their family was very evident. I was heart broken to find out he passed away and that Mrs. C was already in heaven waiting for him. Prayers for peace and comfort for the family.
