Dear Marilyn and family,
We send our prayers and condolences to you at this time of sorrow. We have been many years apart in miles, but not in thought.
He was a wonderful man, husband and father and meant so much to so many.

Dear Marilyn, and Coleman Family. Our sincere love and support for you as you experience Bob's passing.
So thankful for eternal family relationships.
Bless you cousins.
Bob brightened my day. He always had a kind word for me as I mowed the lawn and a reservoir of knowledge that illuminated my world. He and Marilyn inspire my family to be better neighbors and he will continue to do so without even being here.
Love you guys.
President Coleman touched my life deeply with his love, kindness, care, service, and example. He and his wife will always be in my heart. I love you dearly. Sister Coleman, my prayers are with you and your family at this time.
President Coleman was an inspired leader who lived his testimony of Jesus Christ through his example to others. I learned so much from him as a missionary, and will be forever grateful for his service. Sister Coleman, we love you and hope that you feel our support and prayers.
President and sister Coleman will always be dear to my heart. I had the pleasure if welcoming them to Portugal as his first assistant to the President. I was able to travel with he and sister Coleman as I showed them the mission and introduced him to all of the missionaries and bishops as well as the faithful members of the church in Lisbon. I will always remember his loving smile and tender heart. He taught me how to love the people I served. He was a valiant man who loved the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you for being a great example of selfless sevice and love. You will always be remember by me and my family.
Bob was the most inspiring mission president, very supportive of missionary work and encouraging to the work of the Lord. He has been greatly missed in Portugal since he finished his presidential term but now he's greatly missed by all of those who love him. My condolences to his family and in particular to his wife, Sister Coleman. Love from Portugal and the United Kingdom.
Marilyn I'm so sorry for your earthly loss of Bob, I love his quiet sense of humor, his terrific smile and seeing him take his daily walk! What a wonderful man! Love you Marilyn! Tanja & Tom Dickson
We love you both and you are in our prayers. Won't it be wonderful to see him again - happy, alert, and his smile? What a wonderful life you two had - what a blessing you both are in each other's lives. Love you, Elder & Sister Bodell
