My deepest sympathy for your loss. To the daughter I got to meet, your Dad was a wonderful man! After being out of long term nursing for nearly 10 years, on my return I vowed to not get attached. Boy did he prove me wrong! I will miss him for sure. One of my last conversations with him was about what a wonderful singer I am!!! OMY what a laugh!!! He hoped that my "singing lessons" wasn't too expensive LOL!! I sure will miss him

Dear Aunt Dorothy , Lynn, Gena, Penny and families,  
     I am so sorry for your loss.  Uncle Bill was a wonderful Uncle to me and friend to everyone.  When I went to visit Uncle Bill earlier this year, I ask him about his thoughts on God.  He smiled and said, "He is my Lord and Saviour".  That was awesome to hear.  He told me  when he was young he used to attend church but had gotten  away from it, and that now he had rededicated his live to God.  I had a great time that day visiting with him.  I will always be glad I went.
     Uncle Bill will be waiting to see us all again in that "Great Reunion" in heaven led by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ:)  Oh what a day that will be.  Oh what a time he's having right now with all our loved ones who have gone on before us.  This life is just a moments vapor compared to spending all eternity with God.         With all our love and caring,
                                                                 Pat and Max Teegarden
