So sorry to see you go Bill, you were a great friend. Our years at LSU will always be great memories, and have enjoyed our continued friendship into our adult years. Save me a good seat and I'll see you on the other side. My condolences to all Bill's friends and family, he is greatly missed.
Aunt Maureen, Kevin, Mary and
Danny, It is Thanksgiving and we are thinking of you today. It was just 2 days ago when we shared a solemn and beautiful
Tribute to Billy. We are all continuing to remember that day (including the 21 Gun Salute) and fond memories of Billy.
You always had a smile! So long.
Words are inadequate to express the sorrow we feel at Bill's passing. He was a wonderful person and a great friend. He is in our hearts and minds and we will miss him so very much: the jokes, the lunches, and most of all, the conversations. Our deepest condolences to his family.
A good friend and confidant. I will miss the phone calls just to see how I was doing. Most of all, I will miss the laughter. He always kept my spirits up!
Bill was one of a kind. He was a great lawyer and a greater friend. We will miss him mightily. Condolences to all.

I had the pleasure of meeting Bill some years ago. Having five kids,he was the one we turned to when they received a ticket. The last time we spoke, we joked that he had helped us out with three, only two to go. He was always so pleasant and kind. He made us
feel like he was a long time friend of the family. He was a sincerely NICE guy. Our regards to his loved ones. We are so sorry. We will keep your family and Bill in our prayers. The Bodin Family
Dear Mrs. Maureen, Mary, Kevin and Danny,
There are no words to take away your pain at this time. I can only say that may each of you think about the good times you shared with "Billy" during your time of terrible grief. No one should ever have to lose a child and/or sibling. I remember last seeing Billy at the St. Patrick's Day parade up on Magazine St. and still hear him calling my name. I can still hear his voice.
May God wrap his loving arms around all of you at this time. He was way too young to die, so we all need to remember to live life to the fullest each and every day. May he have eternal life! Rest in Peace, Billy.
Dear Coughlin Family,
I knew Bill in law school and will always remember him for his easy-going manner and sharp, quick wit. I am so sorry for your loss.

Aunt Maureen, Mary, Kevin, Danny, Saiko and Stacy, I am so saddened by the loss of Billy. He was taken too young and will be missed greatly. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sorrowful time.
My condolences to the Coughlin family. Every year we would exchange birthday calls as they fell two days apart. We would speak briefly and catch up on each other's lives. Godspeed and rest in peace my friend.
Dear Maureen and family, I cannot begin to express the sadness I feel. As an alumni of St. John, Loyola School of Law and Bill's first law office, I send my deepest sympathies. If there is anything I can do, please let me know.
Goodbye Billy - a solid Christian and a good friend.
My caring thoughts are with the family & friends of Bill. May beautiful memories continue to be in you hearts. May the God of comfort strengthen you during this difficult time. (Psalms 46:1)
Ms. Maureen, Mary, Danny, and Kevin,
You have my deepest sympathy on the loss of your son and brother. My thoughts and prayers are with you. You have my heartfelt sympathy.
Rest in peace, Billy. The 1976 graduation class of St. Philip Neri will miss you.
Many thanks to all for the kind words!

My sympathy goes out to the Coughlin family for a great guy who passed away too young. I will remember Bill for the years in law school and fondly for those first few years that we shared a law office and practiced, laughed and had great times together.
Thinking of your family at this time. Love all of you so much. Wish I could be there.
