My heart was sadden over the loss of Bill and I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose someone so loved, a part of your life, can bring such overwhelming grief but the God of all comfort tells us at 2 Kings 20:5 he feels our pain. At we can read John 5:28, 29 that you will have him in your life once again. May all the memories you have give you calm and peace to help you through until God’s promises come true. Again so very sorry for your heartache.🌻

Nina, Chad, Clark, and family,
My deepest sympathy to you all. I remember Bill from Dixie Youth baseball, where my son played several years as a teammate to Chad. He will be sadly missed by many, but his life impacted the lives of many, many more. Gone too soon... You are all in my prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of William's passing. As employees of Dothan Housing Authority we shared many many laughters days as we worked together and as we talked about many things over the course of the years at DHA . My grandson loved to visit Williams office to see the deers hanging on the walls and always begged William for one . William was always so kind to every one he met and always had a smile on his face . I always enjoyed talking to WIlliam he had the biggest heart for people. Ms NIna I no your going to miss him dearly sending prayers and my condolences to you Mrs. Nina and your family . Sandi Paulk ( Walker )

Georgetown Baptist Church sends its sincerest condolences to the family of Mr. Bill Lisenby. I met him by chance in the Heard Magnet School pickup line one day and we struck up a friendship. Every time I would be early enough to park right in the semi-circle, he would be right there, one vehicle ahead of me. In our first conversation, he found out that I was the pastor at Georgetown Baptist and asked about Uncle Seab and Aunt Eloise. I just want his family to know that his friendly nature and willingness to enjoy a conversation were the reason we had a short but enjoyable friendship. I added your family to our church prayer list on our Facebook page at the request of the Ellis family here. You are in our prayers, Dr. Kermit P. Soileau, Pastor
