My late husband, Jerry, and I were privileged to have him in our congregation in the 1990s. He was always joking, etc., and a blessing to us. Sorry to hear of his passing, but happy to know is with the Lord.

I will miss Bill. Each day he had kind words and was a gentle, decent honorable man, and it was a pleasure to help him live with honor during the time I helped to care for him at the veteran's home. God Speed, Bill. You won't be forgotten!

My condolences to Bill's family and friends. I grew up in Cheyenne and attended First Assembly of God. The Sauer family was definitely part of First Assembly. We know that Bill is enjoying walking the streets of Gold and seeing Jesus.
