Will Bound celebrated and treasured God’s promise of forgiveness and eternal life in Christ. He shared that with many of us as he sang in the choir and talked over a meal. God’s promises to Will have been realized as God brought him from this valley of sorrow to his heavenly home. We rejoice for Will whose race is now done.
