Thank You

Thank you for all the beautiful and encouraging words, prayers and virtual hugs. We feel so loved and comforted and will treasure each one of these sentiments for days to come. Each comment, text and tribute has been a source of joy that has brought me to tears over and over again.

The funeral can be re-played at a later time and will be posted here as soon as it is uploaded. Thank you for being together with us in spirit.

With a grateful heart, 

About Bill Sweeney

In 1996, at the age of 36, I was diagnosed with ALS. The neurologist gave me 3-5 years to live. 24 years later... :-) I'm completely paralyzed and unable to speak. By God's grace and the great care of my wife, I'm still here. I live to encourage and give hope to others going through difficult times.

  1. Mary, Bill’s testimony ministered to so many over the years… and so did yours. When I consider your sacrificial love and devotion, I bow my head. What an inspiration you yourself have been, what an example of the love of Christ!

  4. Hi miss Mary,
    I believe Bill was a special brother in the lives of a lot of Christians. He had a kindness that I wish I had, and he was someone that you couldn’t help but love.
    God bless you and your family.

  5. You’ve been such a warrior of love and strength for so long, Mary. And now that Bill has gone home to be with Jesus, you begin a new adventure with your girls. May you sense the peace and presence of God in every moment. May your grief be filled with beautiful memories of all you and Bill were able to do to glorify our Lord. And may you experience His shalom throughout the coming days, weeks, and months. Thank you for sharing your family with us. With much gratitude and love, Dayle.

  8. As I have been praying for comfort for you and the family I realized Bill did not die. He entered into eternal life with his creator. He has been taken into his glorious relationship in heaven, what he was saved for and what he labored for. Rejoice!

  15. Dear Mary, when I received your news the other day of Bills death I felt very emotional even though I’ve never met you and Bill or your family. It’s so amazing how Gods Holy Spirit binds us together in the family of God. When I see the love and commitment that you have poured out over all these years and Bills perseverance and servant heart I feel so proud of you both, and overwhelmed by Gods grace.poured out over you and through you.
    As I prayed for you this morning I had a picture of Jesus carrying you, holding you so closely.
    “My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness.”
    Every blessing to you and your family,
    Jane (UK)

  16. A big hug to you and the girls Mary. You have been very much on our hearts. While Bill runs with Jesus, we know his absence is with mixed emotion. Go gently. Love Beth 💝
