You have been a true friend to me, and a great source of comfort in the passing of my Son Bryan. I will miss you everyday.
We remember Bill as always a very pleasant man. He laughed a lot. His mom, Lilly was as sweet as they come to. Our condolences to the family and his other friends.
My condolences. I worked with him at the Senior Citizens Center in Clinton. He was so nice.
My condolences to all who knew and loved Bill. He was a dear friend and a blessing to the Chimes community and always had a big smile for anyone he met. Bill will be missed!
I knew Bill & his mother when I lived out by Chimes. Loved them. May he rest in peace. Prayers of comfort for Betty & his niece.
I remember Bill as a gentleman farmer of sorts. Mom and I met him when we our family were newcomers to Chimes. He gave me an assortment of irises to plant on our property and patiently explained exactly how to plant them in groups with the growing end of the rhizome facing outward so they would not crowd each other. That knowledge has never left me! I wish I had kept up the acquaintance, because he definitely left an impression on me as a kid. RIP, Mr. Coursey!
My condolences to all that knew Bill because he will be missed. He was a piano player at Chimes (Liberty Missionary Bapt Church) where my husband Ronnie Lee pastored and now my son pastors. My son took piano lessons when we went there on Sunday afternoon between services. He was such a kind and loving Christian man. I knew him and his mother while we went there. I just regret not taking the time to go and visit him while he was in the apartments at Clinton. We will get to visit someday and my husband is welcoming him to the wonderful heaven he now lives.
You will be missed my dear friend Bill. R.i.P
