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.
