    May God bless his soul

    I am really sorry to hear of this news. I had wondered in the past how old Mr. Coleman was; I guess I am surprised that he was 88.

    I absolutely have enjoyed his photography and he was truly a valuable window in a world that most of us would never see otherwise. Surely, he will be missed.

    Rest In Peace Bill Coleman.

    Godly man

    Bill was a lovely, godly man – and while he’ll be missed I have no doubt he received a warm welcome as he walked through heaven’s gates.

    I’ve ordered photos before, and spoke with Noah who is wonderfully helpful. Bill was also kind enough to answer questions for my blog. Some readers didn’t understand how he could take photos of the Amish, then Bill explained his relationship with them and that he had their permission.

    He will be missed and he left behind a legacy of images we can enjoy for years to come.

    Bill Colemans passing

    What a wonderful legacy he has left us, and other generations to enjoy. Through his lenses we {us English} were able to really see what the Amish world is like. With much Sympathy.

    Comment on Thank you Bill (February 3rd, 2014 at 13:54)

    Thank you Bill

    If it wasn’t for Bill’s photography of the Amish I would have never been interested in them.
    I have many bought photos from him. I recall asking him to purchase a photo.
    He replied that that particular one was discontinued.
    He then sent me an email that he found the negative and sold me the Artist’s proof.
    It’s sad to see him go but his works shall not be forgotten, may he rest in peace.
    He will always have a place in our hearts.
    Thank you Bill!

    wonderfully amazing photos

    When I learned Friday that Bill had passed earlier in the week I was stunned and even more stunned when I learned he was of the same state as me and no less a few counties away.
    He will be missed and my heart goes out to his family.

    I am so sad to hear of his passing. I enjoyed (still do & always will) his photographs…they often drew me into them, a world I’ll never be a part of in any other way.

    My sympathy to his family, friends, and countless fans.

    Comment on Aww man! (February 8th, 2014 at 00:37)

    Aww man!

    I just saw this and the first thing I said was, “Aww man!”. Totally a loss. Beautiful artistry in his work. There isn’t enough of simple and refreshing imagery these days. I loved his work ever since I saw it. Some serious, some quite funny (“The Itch” is hilarious!) but all VERY well balanced and brilliant. Though he is gone, it was a good thing he was here.
