Dear Sue, I read about your father this morning. I remember him well when he was the BS coach. I've thought of you often. We wish you would come to a 1961 class reunion. Would love to see you. Deanna, Jane and I finally got Doylene, Charlotte, and Barbara to come to the last one. Since then we have seen each other on a regular basis. It's been great! Thinking of you and your sisters, Sharon P,S, Hello to Kay and Ken

We wish Carl's family the best in love and kindness that this world has to offer. We know he will be greatly missed, as he was loved by so many. My father J. O. Haney was a friend and customer of Carl's, and thought the world of him.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

It's funny what memories come to mind at a time like this. Things I haven't thought about in decades. That's odd enough to say...."decades". It has been a long time, and lots of really good memories come to mind for me. I hope you have those memories as well. They sustain us at times like these. My love to each and everyone of you. Nancy

Coach Coleman taught me everything about football and much about life. I still remember what a tight reign he kept on all of us teenagers as we played our best and went to state in 1953. He was a wonderful teacher and a great example. I will continue to think of him often as I have, with fondness, all those years since he was our coach. China joins me in expressing our sorrow and assuring you our prayers are with you. Frank Long

Sorry to hear of your loss. Mr. Coleman was always a good example, and someone who was there when needed. He gave much to area of Big Spring and will be rembered by many as a loving man with a big heart.

Coach Coleman was a fine leader of our boys on the teams of the fifties. He was a great encourager and always had time for his "football" boys even when they were no longer boys. His nickname of "Cobb" came from his days of playing outstanding football for ACU. I miss him and his warm concern for those he loved. Jim Porter

Dear Gayle, How special your Father was, and how saddened I am to learn of your loss. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I have so many happy memories of you and your family -- especially those of us pulling into the "station" and getting top-notch service with the gum and candy! Love, Paula

It was sad to hear from my sister-in-law, Betty Birdwell, that Mr. Coleman had passed away. My late husband, Huey Birdwell and I operated the Birdwell Fruit Stand on 2nd Street there in Big Spring for many years. We bought gas from Mr. Coleman at his station on 2nd Street and Snyder Hwy. He helped us by giving us good sound advice, encouragement when the going was tough and went so far as loaning us money when we needed it most , which we repaid but never forgot his love and generosity! Huey passed away in 1985 but I came to visit Mr. Coleman when I was there for John Birdwell's funeral in 2005. God bless you all at the loss of this lovely man. Laura Birdwell-Pender
