Hi Cindy! I have heard that some people have had trouble with the audio. I’m not sure why that is. I’m sorry you had trouble hearing. Thanks for taking the time to watch. I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since Bill left. Thanks for the comments you made on his blog over the years. I visited your blog the other day and was blown away by your photographs. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Dear Mary, Family, and Friends: Bill used to follow me, if you will like to receive from me as he did feel free by subscribing to httsp://amfbem.com We look forward to our continued fellowship.
I have not been active at WordPress for so many years, few months ago I had an urge to check what’s Bill up to, but I did not pursue and I am deeply regret that decision. I missed my chance to possibly chat with him via comments.
I should never allow my laziness to take over any urge comes my way.
I am sad but happy at the same time, for Bill no longer bond in his physical body and know that he is now freely moving around with his Heavenly Father.
May God’s peace and comfort be with Mary and her extended family!

Thank you for sharing, Mary. Thoughts and prayers for you and your whole family. 🙏 May the God of all comfort be blessed. ☘️
I watched the funeral service Mary, it was a beautiful testimony to both you and Bill and your daughters and extended family. I really miss Bill, I’m happy for him but I still miss him and I can only imagine how you and your family feel. Just letting you know that you and your family are in my prayers. God’s peace, grace and blessings to you and yours.
Thank you for sharing!
What a beautiful service and tribute to a great, godly man. I can’t wait to meet you all some day!
Thank you for sharing this…and for your devotion, Mary. You were the wind beneath Bill’s wings. ❤
The very biggest hugs to all of you celebrating Bill’s life! ALL of YOU allowed Bill to change so many lives, my own included. Thank you ((hugs))
I have no words except that I am looking forward to reading Bill’s book. His unfinished manuscript could not have been left in better hands than those that cared for him in this life. Thank you Jesus, for the Sweeney family!
Thank you for sharing such a beautiful tribute to Bill. Prayers for everyone in the family. God bless you all!
Wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
What a beautiful service. I was moved and was strengthened by watching. Thank you for sharing and allowing us to be a part of this wonderful service. God Bless you, Mary and family. My heart and prayers are with you all.
Thank you Mary for sharing this beautiful and moving service for dear Bill. The words that he spoke in his interview so touched me about how we should allow God to use us in the midst of our trials whatever they may be. Bill never ran away from his suffering but always ran straight to Jesus who strengthened him and helped him every minute of every day. I hope and pray I will never forget that and apply it to my own life. Now Bill is sharing in the peace and joy of Heaven and may God be with you and your family always.
What a beautiful service for a beautiful man and his family. I know you will be sorely missed and you were an inspiration to everyone you came in contact with. God bless you Bill.
What a beautiful service for a beautiful man and his wonderful family. I know he will be sorely missed. He lived a good life a life we should all admire. Love you guys.
I’m so glad you shared this here, Mary. I’ll always be grateful for Bill’s life, and for you and your children, as well. Love and ongoing prayers.
Thank you for sharing this service with us. It was so moving and so beautiful. When I think of a life well lived, I shall forever remember Bill. Somehow, it just seems fitting to say that his name belongs alongside the other champions of faith in Hebrews chapter 11.
What a family you all are! God bless you is my prayer.
Thank you for letting us be a part of this God-honoring service in celebration of Bill’s life and witness. He was truly an inspiration for all of us who knew him through his blog. As one person put it, Bill’s Unshakable Hope has turned into Unspeakable Joy. I’m thankful your daughters and Bill’s brother shared their thoughts, and that the pastor presented the Gospel. I pray that all of us who listened or watched will take the mantel and continue to unashamedly share Jesus with everyone, just like Bill did. We still have work to do, even as his work is done. Continued prayers for you, Mary, your family, and all who will miss this very special guy!
Thank you for sharing Bill’s service with us. Unshakeable Hope was truly a blessing to me and so many others. Mary – you & Bill raised two remarkable daughters and what they shared and said at his service is testimony to your family. I lost my father over two years ago and watching this service reminded me of times I would share Bill’s blog with him. I hope they meet in Heaven – two salesman with a great sense of humor and a deep and abiding love for Jesus. May God’s peace and the love of your family and friends bring you comfort.
Good morning Mary and Family,
Thank you so much for the beautiful funeral and the video that allowed me to be a part of it. It was lovely. It brought tears to my eyes for so many reasons.
I’m so grateful that I got to be just a small part of you and Bill being on Moody Radio. Thank you that you were willing to do that and Chris Fabry’s program. I have talked about the two of you many times on the air at Moody and I will continue to because it’s such a testimony that all of our listeners will be strengthened by. From both of you.
Know that I pray for you each morning and evening, and God willing, we can stay in touch. I would love to encourage you as you are on this new journey now.
Much love, Nancy Turner, Moody Radio
God bless your family.
I know that ya’ll love Bill very much. I love him too, and I admire how Christ reflected out of him.
I posted multiple posts about his death, both here and on Facebook. I just want you to know that Bill touched many lives in a good way, and his place among us Christians should be told in my opinion.
All glory to the risen Lord Jesus Christ, and no glory to us whatsoever.
God bless Bill, his wife Mary, the children, his family and friends. I share in their pain and joys. My husband of 47 years went to be with the Lord in July 2020 (with covid19). We were both missionaries in Nigeria… I can relate with Bill’s beautiful grace-filled and powerful words. God’s grace is always sufficient for any situation. It shines especially during hard times. This is also my testimony. I am now alone doing God’s work. Yet, I am not alone. I can never be alone, now and forever. Jesus our Lord promised ‘never to leave me or to forsake me’. May the Holy Spirit who is our Comforter embrace Mary and the children. The worship continues…
A beautiful celebration of my brother William “Bill” Sweeney. Mary, do not think for once that just as I saw your husband in my spirit that I did not see you as well. I will like to build a friendship with you just as I had with Bill.
So Beautiful, thank you!
Thank you Mary for the wonderful blessing of allowing us to be there through this medium as most of us have been with Bill over the last several years. What a great understated production it was, tender and warm, with a great spirit and atmosphere. I saw so much joy. Bill will always be missed but I am happy he is free. I’ve been to many funeral services but this one ranks up close to the top. You did an excellent job. And the consistent focus was always on our great, loving, compassionate, strong, and powerful Lord Jesus who made our eternal life on the other side possible through His great sacrifice of love. All praise, glory, and honor to Him.
Goodbye Bill. Thank you for being a part of our lives.

Thank you for sharing this here. It was such a blessing to hear your daughters share from their heart. Jesus was glorified today. Prayers for you all.
Thank you for sharing this tribute. I have been so blessed by his encouragement to keep following the Lord. May you and your family be held by so many prayers. What a blessing to know that he is whole and free with His Lord now!
Thank you so much for sharing this. Bill inspired me for many years.
That was a beautiful tribute to Bill. I’m glad he got to share of God’s faithfulness in his own memorial service through the recorded interview. I know it’s just what he would have wanted. He was a true hero to those of us who knew him. A TRUE HERO! We will miss him so much, but at the same time rejoice because we know he is with Jesus and enjoying his reward.
I am so sorry to hear, I didn’t know that he had gone home to our Lord, thank you for sharing the service with us.
Thank you for sharing. I never met Bill, but I appreciated his posts and heart for God. Praying for your family at this time.
Thank you so very much for sharing this amazing celebration of a faithful servant of Christ. Tears of sadness and joy have been shed. See you one day my American mate, i will miss your blog. God bless you Mary and all the family. Peace and love. Phil
Thank you for sharing this. I will miss Bill’s messages. Praying for you all.
Thank you for sharing this celebration with his readers, Mary. Bill may have had als, but listening to your daughters clearly als never had him. Free in his life in the power of the Holy Spirit, free now with His Savior. God bless each of you always.
Praying for you all, Mary. It’s so comforting to know that Bill is in perfect peace at home with the Lord. He was and continues to be such an encouragement and inspiration to us all. God’s comfort and blessing be with you all.
May we all meet in God’s glorious kingdom and His peace and comfort fill his wife, children, family and friends. He is missed but His love and words last forever.
I am confident he is having the best of times up there. What a treat to have “met him through is writings. He was always encouraging! God bless his family.
Bless your hearts! Thank you for sharing this ❤️🙏🏻 I’ll be watching in a bit!
