    Tim, my heart is heavy for you. I pray you know how great of a dad you were to Keaton. I saw it when you spoke of him, how you smiled when you brought him to school and talked about him.
    Keaton has made an impact in my life. I was so proud to know both of you. He was such a sweet and happy boy!! He is now resting in the arms of our Lord. Thinking and praying for the days to come. I know your heart is heavy. Hugs!!

    So sorry to hear about Keaton. I used to be the nurse at Willson, and remember him well. He’s finally getting to run with God and the big dogs. May you have peace in your heart to help you get through all this. God love you all, Tim and family. I bet he’s telling Jesus all about his daddy now!!

    Prayers for the Sanders family in their time of need. To be absent from the body is to present from the Lord. In this world, you will have trouble but take heart, I have overcome the world.
