  1. I went to Sonny Kim’s funeral and Greg Coleman was the only person I talked to. I worked with him in D2 and even rode with him a couple times. His locker was right by mine. His shoes were always shiny and his uniform and appearance was always impeccable. I always felt safer when he was onscene. He was a good man to have around.
