I am so upset to just now hear this. Charles was a wonderful man and was always available to help our family in any way.
Our condolences to the Coussons family~~
Judge Coussons was such a kind & affable man. He had a good heart & was compassionate & caring to his friends. His laughter permeated a room, but he was also serious, intelligent & well read. May the angels gently embrace him on his journey to Heaven.
A hail fellow well-met. Flights of angels have carried him to his rest. I thank the family for sharing him with all the rest of us. Mary Kay Green
Our condolences to the COUSSONS family.
Uncle Charlie you were a one of a kind man. You inspired everyone and you will be so missed.
Uncle Charlie I will miss you, your laughter, your lunch gatherings and your wonderful friends. I enjoyed all your stories, giving me advise, love and friendship. It was so inspiring to hear you talk about all the old politics and you opinions of the future of the GOP.
I didn't know you as long as most but having a part of your beautiful wife and her family always will be in my memories and will enjoy future stories to keep you beautiful soul living.
"Uncle Charlie", We will miss your witty stories, discussing the stock market and most other current events, your love of life- but most of all we will miss your contagious laughter. Thank you for all the wonderful memories- there's a rich family history filled with love, laughter, and fun. Lots of loved ones in heaven all ready for you! Love - Angie Townsend Ellington and Family
I also was a baby lawyer when I appeared in Judge Coussons' court. Although he had a reputation for being a "tough judge", he treated me with respect and was helpful to me during my first trial.
My condolences to the COUSSONS family. may the God of all comfort help your family to endure during this time of grief.
Judge Coussons was a fine "old time" judge without an ax to grind. A very fair man.
I never met a man that had so much passion and love in his big heart for people than Judge Coussons. I am his Private Investigator and I know firsthand. I am heartbroken, I want to thank you Judge and my family wants to thank you and your lovely wife Mary Ann. I guess you are right Judge that you were going to put me on a diet to lose weight. I will miss all the good times you and I had at the restaurants; spaghetti on Thursdays, all the East Texas trips visiting, and the many outings with all your wonderful East Texas relatives. Do not worry Judge because of you, the pounds will drop now. Always will be love for you and Mary Ann. Thank you again for opening all the doors for me. See you in heaven Judge; I know the door will be open.
With Love, Otis Owens Private Investigator
Judge Coussons was one of the first judges I appeared in front of as a baby lawyer. A wonderful man and legacy. May God rest his soul and give his family strength.
Judge Coussons was a very special friend of my family. We counted him as part of our family. He was such a sweet, generous and caring man. We will miss him dearly. My prayers and blessings to Mary Ann and family.
To a man of Honor and Dignity... You are missed.
Charlie was more than a friend... he was also like a 2nd father and grandfather. Amazing man. He lived life to the fullest to the last day - will truly be missed...
To the Coussons Family: Judge Charles Coussons was a First Class, Honorable man and friend. He helped me many times when I was a young attorney, always offering advice and support. He will be greatly missed by me and many others. Although I mourn with you in your loss, I also celebrate with you in Judge Coussons new life in Heaven.
You were quite an inspiration, and meant so much to us. We love you!!! You lived an extrordinary life...
Hi Pal. Miss you. The day will come and I will see you again. I hope you have your music and a cold one for me when I get there. I'll bring the latest good sounds that I hear about and bring you up to date on Gaga and the other music weirdos here. If you see ol' Gary Stewart let him know that we miss him too! Love you Judge. See you soon my friend. I will never forget you!
