I will light a candle in your memory.

Bill was a very capable and caring physician. For years I enjoyed participating in the orthopedic care of his patients and in later life running into him and Karen having breakfast at Bob Evans. once my son and I had a memorable trail ride with him as he extolled the pleasures of his Foxtrotter horse. He was a modern throwback of a loving physician, having the horse and lacking only the buggy!! God speed. Bob Hufft

Compassion totally decribes Dr Bill.
He cared so greatly for his patients. He was the first Dr to call me at home, on a Sunday afternoon, after reading an article. He cared so much in diagnosing and treating my condition that he thought enough to actually call me at home, on his day off. What Dr does that? Dr Sunderwith did. I am sure he has heard his creator say "Well done my good and faithful servant, enter into your reward". May God Be With, Comfort and
Bless this family.

Dr. Bill delivered me and my brother. I was born in 1961 and my brother was in 1965, I think part of the reason I have never had a fear of going to the doctor, is because my memory as a child was a place where the doctor was kind and compassionate. Dr. Bill made house calls out to our farm when my grandpa was sick. He was also my father and mother's doctor. He will be missed.

Dr. Bill and Karen Sunderwirth hired my wife Linda Gingry Clark in 1984 upon her completing her LPN degree at Graff Vo-Tech in Springfield,MO. Linda thoroughly enjoyed working for Dr. Bill and Karen as they cared for countless patients whom they loved as members of their family. Linda never wanted to retire from nursing but had to when she died from small-cell lung cancer on 11 June 2000. Dr. Bill's patients wrote numerous "get-well" letters to Linda and Dr. Bill's office staff bent over backwards to help Linda and me through her last 18 months on this earth. Goodbye and thank you Dr. Bill for being our favorite family physician and friend. I am so glad that I got to see you and Karen while you were at the Veterans Home and wish I had visited you more often. May the Good Lord bless you and keep you and comfort Karen and your children,former patients, and friends who love you so much.

We are deeply saddened by Bill's passing. He was a wonderful cousin, friend, playmate when we were young, counselor when we were older. We had fun reunions with him and Karen and once with the extended families. Such wonderful memories of a wonderful man. God bless the whole family

His voice was the music in my life.
He was the gentle breeze that helped me go forward in trying times.

You were my guidepost.

The laughter, joy and caring he gave was a balm to my soul. I was so blessed and honored for just knowing him.
If I could, I would do it all over again.

Go with my love and may God bless you greatly. Always-
Your Wife

Dr. Bill was an amazing man, both as a doctor and as a friend to my parents. He kept in touch with Dad through the years, and even though Dad has severe Alzheimer's he always knew Dr. Bill. He was even able to have a phone chat with him a few weeks ago. I'm sure he's greeting old friends, and swapping jokes with Mom right now. My condolences for your loss, it's so hard to let an angel go back to heaven.

Rest in Peace Dear friend, doctor and brother in Christ
