Thinking of you all during this time of loss and sorrow! If Father in Heaven took the fear of death away from we, His children, none of us would want to stay here - We'd all want to hurry up and go home. Bill has now completed his earthly mission and is now back home with our Savior and Heavenly Father getting further instructions on what is to be done next. Life is GOOD on both sides of the veil!!!!!

Dear Keetch family
I was so sorry to hear of Bills Passing. All my growing up years, your family meant so much to me. I have many fond memories of Bill's smile and laughter. I'll never forget the time I had to talk to him as Justice of the Peace and how stern he was and then when we were done he gave me a big hug. Love to all your family. May you feel Gods Love and comfort at this time and always.
