I pray for you officer Coleman, since I have heard of your name. About a week now. I will continue to do so... I ask that you forgive and forget the past: let it remain as the past: a distant memory... move forward so that you may find peace. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, another victim of psychopaths who wanted to play God... They are now facing the one, true God... They be in deep, deep trouble. Peace sir. Thank you for your service.. You have made life for all of us, better.
