I stand before you all today
But not one eye can see my way
My time arrived, to leave this earth
A fact so planned, to every birth
It happened where I had to go
My torch for life was so aglow
I transferred while in uniform
Protecting freedom, through a storm
Should I resent I died for you?
Not on my life, red white and blue
Please help my family thru each day
Tell all my friends, try not to stray
And of the country I did love
Do think of me, through God above
Your memories, brought forth this day
Send love to us, who could not stay.

A special thank you to all the families, friends, neighbors and community businesses who have helped and supported us during the past six months: It still amazes me how so many people pulled together to make our son, Spc. William (Wil) Evans’ Life Celebration exactly as he would have wanted it. It seems hard still to know that it has been six months since we placed Billy's body into the ground. And yet his soul is at peace with his Lord. He died a hero to all of us, yet he died as a child of God to Him. We pray that his memory will continue to live in the hearts of those that knew and loved him. We also hope that we never take for granted the sacrifices that so many men and women have made so that we can live without fear of terrorists in our neighborhoods. Please continue to pray for the safe return of all our soldiers currently serving our country, providing us all with the freedoms and liberties we all enjoy as Americans.
Billy, we love you and we will always miss you. May you know that today we stand in awe of your life and how many lives you touched in the short 22 years you were with us. We consider you a gift that was given only temporarily and taken all to soon. Forever you will be in our hearts. Until the day we see you again standing in the presence of our Savior, we love you.
The Evans Family
Mom, Dad, Heather and Josh
