Coleen helped me to start my family history. My niece, Carole Sue Sulzberger, and I went to Germany to meet our relatives.. I'm sure I told Coleen about this, but this experience met so much to my family. She gave me a good start in my research. I appreciated her knowledge so much. Ada Hubbard

CandleColeen & Harmon were good friends that I knew from West Burlington Christian Church bible study class on Sunday mornings. I had the honor of knowing them for over 30 years. Great Christian examples to me and my late wife Kelli. Good bye Coleen...for now. And my sympathies to the rest of the family. Tom Stevens

Dennis and I send our most heart felt condolences to Harmon and the rest of this very very special family. We met Harmon and Coleen many years ago at West Burlington Christian Church. We gleaned so much from this couple in how they lived their faith in their lives and in their marriage. We worshiped together, studied the Word together...worked together when KAYP was being built...they were right there helping meet whatever needs came up. We just love them both and their witness for the Lord that they gave us. I know the whole family is going to miss Coleen with all their hearts...but praying especially for Harmon, as half of his heart now is missing. Please Dear Lord, keep this family surrounded by your love and comfort them as only you can in such a huge loss. Love, Peggy & Dennis
