My name is Tom Coleman. In February of 1956 I was in basic training at Lackland Air Base in Texas. My best friends there were two brothers from pa. and a Donald Lee Branch from Wellington Texas. The four of us were like brothers getting ourselves through basic. Don and I communicated by mail after service but I believe Don was travelling around a lot with work and we lost track of  each other. I have attempted a number of times to find Don but was never able to find him. I just wanted to express my condolences and to tell his family that he was perhaps one of the friendliest nicest persons I had the  privilege to know, even if it was for such a short time.

Don was such a gracious man, when we would have club meetings at their house, he made a point to come out to say hello!  So very glad that I got to spend a couple of hours with Don and Susie before they moved, I know he will be missed by many.

To my Uncle Don.... what a great legacy you have left. You will always be in our hearts. We love you and will always cherish our memories of you. Give Mamaw, Grandaddy and Uncle Billy a big hug for us!
