Our family loves yours and a suitable incident may remain on the refrigerator door for months. Jeff; please keep the family coming into our homes. We need you more than ever. Your family and ours may grieve over the loss of your father; but his cartoons with "grandpa" show the reality and happiness I'm sure he is experiencing now.

Dear Keane family,
I am crying as I write this message of sympathy to you. When I retired from teaching , I wrote a fan letter to your Dad telling him how much his cartoon meant to me. The Family Circus is the greatest cartoon ever. When I worked, it was the one thing in the paper that I read every day. I'd cut the cartoons out to keep for "just the right time", and I always had a spot on my 'Student Information Board' for "The Family Circus" which was greatly enjoyed by the students. The cartoon gave us hope,a feeling that we are not alone, and it provoked many conversations and much thought. Now as a grandmother, I share the cartoons with my grandchildren.
Your father brought so much happiness and peace into this world with his talent . Jeff, I hope that you can keep the cartoon going. The world needs all the comfort, peace, and happiness that the cartoon embodies.
I am so sorry for your loss of your wonderful father. May God bless your entire family.

i will never forget the time when Uncle Bil came into our classroom in 2nd grade at St Pats school in kennett aquare,pa. he drew the family circus on the blackboard and the nuns left it up for weeks! no one was allowed to erase the blackboard! Years later, Uncle bil came to my wedding and when the guests found out that Bil Keane was at the wedding...needless to say they were thrilled. In my home, i have so many cartoons to treasure signed personally to me and my family. when we were little we would be so thrilled and excited to know that Uncle Bil was coming to town.. it was right up there with christmas morning as a little kid! May God bless and keep my cousins on the west . of all the cartoons in the world, i do believe that God really enjoyed and delighted in the Family Circus! sincerely, with love always, colleen and lewis hart and family (tom's daughter)

Thank you for your service to our country in our time of need! Your gentle forbearance and patience to your family is revealed in your iconic "monocartoon". Your influence, like Bach, was pervasive and served as a role model, like Charlie Schultz. May the mantle of your work fall upon Jeff and endure forever. A true master of life. God's richest blessings upon your and your lovely wife's memory and your remaining family. May Philadelphia honor you in Memoriam. MSgt Nathan Webb, USAF Ret. 502 AF Band

To the Keane family I was so sorry to hear about the death of dear Bill. I have loved reading the Family Circus comic strip over the years and it will be missed and he will be also. I am sure that Bill's life was full and you have wonderfull memories of him to look back on to help fill up the void of his no longer being here. He is in God's memory now and He will help you to endure with his promises. Take care of one another.

What a loss the world has suffered. Family Circus was something to which all families could relate. Good, clean humor will outlast all others.
We, his readers, are missing a teller of one panel stories. HIs family is missing a wonderful role model. My heart goes out to them at this time. Your father's light will continue to shine and light your life. God bless you all.
