I knew Coleman from Ashton. My mom is a resident there. Everyone loved Coleman. He was always so friendly and I enjoyed seeing him when I would visit. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Allison Jenkins

First of all I would like to say how sorry I am. I came to know Coleman while visiting with my mom at Ashton Place. He always had a smile on his face and most times he was playing cards.
