  1. Dennis Bergman, Albuquerque, New Mexico says

    My beloved Mom-in-law will be greatly missed as she was such an inspirtation to our entire family. She certainly loved playing cards and always wanted a rematch if she lost...which wasn't often. She had a rough early life growing up on a Texas ranch during the depression and knew that God have given her a full and fun life.Thompson Funeral Home, thank you for your assistance in the arrangements. You made it easy.Reverand Wilson, thank you for capturing the real "essence" of Mom Coleman and for planning without much help with us at a distance.Trumann was Mom's home and we were lucky to have her for such a short time in Albuquerque. Thank you to all who attended the service on such short notice.

  2. Thomas & Deana Mueller, St.Louis, MO says

    We would like to thank everyone for their kind words. Grandma was truly loved by her friends and family. We will never forget Grandma's visit to our ranch or all the special times we spent with her in Albuquerque. In the short time Tom spent with Grandma they developed a special friendship; Tom will never forget. We are thankful for the memories they will always be cherished and shared with generations to come. Grandma, you will sorely be missed...

  3. Brandon & Leila Bergman, Albuquerque, New Mexico says

    Leila and I would like to thank everyone who new our Grandmother and shared time with her. Some of my fondest memories were spending summers at their house in Trumann and shooting her BB gun at a tin coffee can. There must have been a thousand holes in that thing. Grandpa & Grandma both gave me my first driving lessons on their riding mower and golf cart. I will always remember those times! It makes me laugh when I think about how she used to get out her fly swatter out and wave it at me whenever I was misbehaving. Her most excellent banana pudding deserts will be missed too! We will miss her!May she rest in PEACE!Brandon & Leila Bergman

  4. Sandra Tilmon, Chiang Mai, Thailand says

  5. Ron Tilmon, Kure Beach, NC says

    To my "Mother-in-Law--dear", Rest in Peace.

  6. Barbara Bergman, Albuquerque, New Mexico says

    Thank you to all who have shared in the loss of my mother. My mother was a wonderful mother, wife, sister, friend and Grandmother. Her last years here in Albuquerque were wonderful for me. Her illness was very short and she simply went to sleep and did not wake up. She had been diagnosed with AML and it took her very quickly. She loved having her own apartment...she could coast down the hill from my home to her place. She loved my Maltese puppy "Nikko" and Nikko would carry on and cry like a baby when we entered the gate to her apartment complex until she saw Mom and she would run and jump on her. Mom loved Nikko and they were great companions for 2 years. We often took Mom to Colorado to our condo and she and Nikko would take long walks and Mom loved having Nikko do all her tricks for the people staying at the resort. Mom made many friends here in Albuquerque with bridge and touring but she never forgot her Trumann friends and missed all of you. You were always in her thoughts. We had planned to take some trips together when I retired in August from being a Principal in the school system here. There is not a day that passes that I do not miss her. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and cards and letters.

  7. Aileen Dudley Walton, Vancleave, MS says

    I was so saddened to hear about Lou's death. I talked with her only a week before & this news was such a shock to me. I truly loved Lou! She was such a sweet & caring person to my late father & myself. I will never forget how kind & helpful she was to him. I remained in contact with her all these years after his death & will miss her so very much. May God give you the strength that you need during this time of grief. Sincerely, Aileen Walton

  8. Debbie Martin, Little Rock, Ar says

    I am sorry for your loss. I had played golf with Lu a few times at the Trumann country club many years ago. She was a fun person to be around. I was saddened to hear that she had passed away. My prayers and thoughts are with the family.

  9. Rick, Sherry, & Ryan Bane, Trumann, Arkansas says

    We had the pleasure of being neighbors with Mitch before he passed away and Lu for 25 plus years. We want to send our deepest sympathies to the family. She has and will forever be missed by our family.The Bane'sRick, Sherry, Ryan, Amy and Conner
