I owe a lot of what is instilled in me to knowing you. Only guy I know wasn’t scared of anything except Ronald McDonald. Days I thought it was over for me you were there. I went to college came back for my granddad’s funeral you were back from basic and supported me, that’s when we found out we were cousins for real. I’m so sad yet happy that the times we shared helped us to become gentlemen, father’s, and husband’s. I always looked up to you. Thank you for taking me under your wing. My Day ONE! My guardian angel!

  9. In loving memory of Bryant Coleman,
    When I came to 64th in 2007, Bryant was one of the first people I got along with and he was welcoming. Bryant was funny and nice and a genuine person. He was the kind of person that you can go to with a problem or if you needed to talk and not only would he give great advice, he would put a smile on your face. He was a great soldier and a wonderful human being. I will miss you man. God bless your soul Bryant and God bless the Coleman family.
