We met about 26 years ago I served you coffee at Cinnamon Susies and that’s where it all began you met my mom and married her you both filled a place in my heart that nobody can replace I always respected you as a father,sent you cards for your birthdays and holidays brought you gifts on these dates as well I remember when you went to grandparents day with Joey to school it meant the world to him you were the only grandpa he knew and you gave him your veterans hat it meant the world to him he wore it to high school proudly to honor you! I took on the role of legal guardian and you were the center of my world for the last months of your life we had some challenges along the path but I tried to make your last days as happy as possible bringing you little Debbie cakes and candy and your pajama pants and a special Christmas tree for Christmas I found the card I gave you and I cried because that was the only one I found but I know that you are now surrounded by lots of Love in heaven!! I’m so happy in that sense because you got your legs back!! And I know your running and dancing with joy! Last time I saw you after Christmas you hugged me and told me I was your favorite! Lol I know because I connected with you so much in your later months we walked to dollar general together and I sat outside with you on your smoke breaks we had so many talks and we prayed together I know that you are a good hearted person and had a rough life you were rough at times but I know why and God knows why❤️I know my mom told me that sometimes you were all she had when she was sick and you would help her when she called for you and that means so much too me! It does my heart good to know your both healthy and happy in heaven together but I will miss you dearly!!!my only regret is that I didn’t see you more because I know you needed me more!!i did my best to be a good daughter and I hope that God showed you my ❤️ heart that I did my best for you! I love you dad much respect and honor!chrissy❤️🙏🌹

I just wanted to say that at times Bill was unlovable but he always showed respect to others and always tried to do the right thing.
People grow on you over time and that’s exactly what happened with bill, we had some moments that are cherish-able and I will hold those close
He loved his cats and the lord he stood firm in his faith until thee end.
I am proud of his accomplishments and honor him for his services in Vietnam, William McCoy you were quite a character Thank you for the laughs (Jesus has his hands full) I honor you in life and now in death, sincerely Charlene
