    Dearest Ina and Family, We did not know about Coleman’s passing. I was looking on line for funeral today and noticed his obituary. Our prayers for you, Julie and family. Thoughts of him at Miller-Brown Motors when I worked for them were brought to mind, He was always so kind to me during my first pregnancy. I appreciated him so much. Then when we were neighbors our children playing together with Julie are fond memories. You both were such special neighbors.
