Not sure what to say?

It was truley an honor to have known Al.I loved talking to him and just sitting as we watched movies.I'll never forget once when we were watching something and he broke the silence and asked if we could watch something good,lol.I didn't think it mattered what was on the tube and he surprised me when he did that.He lived to establish peace and almost died doing just that when his ship sank .Thank you Al for your freindship and my prayers are always with you connie and family,God bless you all.

We knew Al as a gentle soul and will be missed by many who have had the opportunity to sit and talk to him about his life.
He was so happy to be amongst his family at every function he was able to attend.
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

To the Coleman family: ours deepest sympathy and prayers are with you all. Connie we hope that you and your family will find peace and comfort in knowing that his suffering is over and that his just rewards await him.
May God bless you and your wonderful family.
Danny and Carol Nix

My condolances and prayers go out to Connie and the rest of the family for your incredible loss...
