September 10, 2019 our dear friend and charter member Tim Keilholtz died in an auto accident. He was a huge asset to our cause and very faithful to Come All Who Are Thirsty. Tim has been with our group for over 6 years and was dearly loved by us. The funeral service for Tim Keilholtz is scheduled for Saturday, October 19, at 10:00 am. The location is the Mount Tarbor Church, located at 10043 Longs Mill Rd, Rocky Ridge, MD 21778. The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Come All Who Are Thirsty Veterans Group P.O. Box 555 Sharpsburg, MD 21782 in Tim's name. This was a very generous gesture on the family's part and we have reached out and offered any assistance they may need. Tim will be greatly missed.
