To the Keane Family,
God brings the good people home earlier. I am thankful for all the years I have enjoyed Family Circus. Mr. Keane made us all feel it was our family as it happened in our homes too. I just wish the world could have stayed that simple.
May God bring you solace in the memories of your life with him.

Heaven is just that much sweeter with you there. So grateful for the hope we have in Jesus Christ regarding our salvation and our ultimate joy of being there with you someday.

I have loved "Family Circus" for so many years and the messages made me laugh and cry. They conveyed a real American family with their adventures and misadventures. I have no children of my own, but have thoroughly lived vicariously through this wonderful comic. I have looked forward to it every day of my life. My sincere condolences to Mr. Keane's family.

I read the 'obituary' with a smile on my face. His cartoon has been a staple that I always read while passing over many others. Rest in peace and thank you for the laughs.

I was born in 1962 and "Family Circus" has been as integral to my experience growing up as Coca-Cola and the American flag. Mr Keane created an American icon and I always look forward to seeing what this timeless family is up to each week! I identified with PJ, Jeffy, Billy and Dolly as a child and continue to identify with them while raising my own children. We will miss Mr. Keane's wonderful purity of life and family.

My family and I attended St. Maria Goretti Parish in Scottsdale. One Sunday, our son Mike, was serving as an Altar Boy for the very first time. Sitting next to us in that first pew was Bil Keane. Mike was the Cross Bearer and when he got to the altar the stand he was to place it in was missing. The Knight's of Columbus had moved it before Mass and forgot to put it back! Mike stood there, flummoxed and nervous, but poised - eventually one of the Knight's figured out why this young altar boy was standing so still holding the crucifix - and came to the rescue with "the stand." By the time Mass was over, Bil had sketched Mike - in his beloved Family Circus style, with the words, "Good job serving today, Mike!" It is framed and enjoys a place in our home to this day. Mike is now a college grad and was back in AZ last week for our daughter's wedding - and it was Mike who told me of Bil's death - such a small act of kindness continues to touch our family so many, many years later. May our dear Lord console you - and your memories and stories sustain you - as you live on in Bil's love.
Sincerely,
Pat Sauerman/Mike Phillips
