So Sorry to read about Mr Colemore's passing. I was the Realtor who sold his house on E street. Over the time it was listed, I got to know him and I thought allot of him. He was a good man and I wish I would have seen this sooner, I would have come to his memorial service. I send my deepest condolences to his family
