My mother and I met Bill and Linda at Point of Grace church where we belonged to the same small group for a period of time. We are so sad to hear of Bill's passing, but what a blessing it is to have known such a wonderful man of God. Our thoughts and prayers are with Linda and the entire Mitchell family. God bless you! Love you! Ann & Cheryl Jackson
The Mitchell Family: Unfortunately we never had the honor or the opportunity of meeting Bill, but listening to Joey speak of the fond memories of his upbringing and family life, we can truly understand the love he had for his father and the wonderful man that he was. We are heartbroken and saddened by his dad's sudden passing. Bill and all of the Mitchell Family are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. May God Bless You All! Mike Strada and Andrea Nyakas; friends of Joey and Andrea Mitchell.
Linda: We are so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He was a good man and remember him with a great smile and always fun to visit with and a good Christian. God Bless!
Sorry to hear of Bill's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Bill challenged me to put my oldest child into christian school. I shared with Bill that I was not sure I could afford to. He said to do it and if I could not pay... he would! We went on Bill's faith that our God would provide. My wife and I enrolled our son into kindergarten. A short time later... Bill moved to Texas. Although I never had to seek Bill out for help... others did on occasion. Three more boys followed my oldest son through a christian school education from kindergarten through graduation. All four have since graduated from ISU and continue to follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Looking back, Bill helped us to make one of few real important decisions in life. Thank you! Bill.
Many prayers to you and the family during this time of grief! Point of Grace has loss two of its precious members this past couple of weeks! JoAnn and Arlan Banning are welcoming him to heaven!

My favorite Bill Mitchell story was almost 20 years ago. I was a new Sales Rep with Leslie Midwestern and struggling to some degree. Bill was taking over our division in Ankeny to right the ship. I had just met Bill for the first time and regarded him as a well respected "no-nonsense" kind of guy. The next day I had a rare opportunity to play golf at Wakonda CC with a friend but had to play hooky from work to do so. Somwhere along the way I hit a lousy shot into the opposing fairway. I couldn't reteive my ball as I had to wait for the oncoming group to hit and get out of my errant ways. As the group got closer and closer I realized it was my new boss walking towards me. He greeted me with a big smile and didn't bat an eye that I was golfing when I should have been working. I always respected Bill as a good boss and a good guy. My condolences to the family.
We all had some memorable experiences together. I never was bored when Bill and I were together.
Saddened to learn of Bill's passing.
He always brightened our days at Leslie
Paper in Des Moines. My heartfelt
condolences to the Mitchell family.
Dear Linda , Joe and Josh. We are all thinking about you and remember all the good times in Plymouth, MN. Bill so loved his family and sweet grand kids, what a blessing! You are in our prayers.
I was so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He was always so gracious to Lori and I, with a quick wit and sly smile and a twinkle in his eye. I was sad to see you all move away, but so enjoyed our time together in building a church together. You were the first from our new church to reach out to me and buy your vehicles from me and you don't know how much that meant to me. You both were such a joy to be around. We will be together again with our Lord one day, and will not be surprised that Bill would be waiting at the wonderful gate to give me a hard time.
If I can be of any help you let me know.
With Jesus Love
Linda, Karen and I are so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. We remember all the great times we had together. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Linda such Bittersweet thoughts. Such good memories of Bill and his love for The Lord. Being in Ft Myers right now Mel and I recall an evening at Mucky Duck with you and friends. He will be greatly missed by so many. God Bless

Linda, we are praying for you and your sons in this time of sorrow. Bill was always a light back in the days at Point of Grace. I pray your memories help soften the sorrow. Bob, Tawnee and Stephaney Eckhart
Linda & Family... We were so saddened to hear of Bill's sudden passing. We will always remember Bill with a smile on his face and that twinkle in his eyes when he knew he "got you" with the humor that was Bill's alone! It was always a pleasure to be a part of Bill's sharing of our Lord! He was a true orator of Jesus. He will be missed. Once you've met Bill, you will never forget him. Our love and prayers for you Linda, as The Lord comforts you with beautiful memories. Love, Lynn & Rich
