Bill's journey back home
Bill Geisler and his parents always hoped that Bill would be able to live on their farm as long as he wanted, but life intervened. Bill's devastating motorcycle accident in 1983, his mother's death in 2002, and his dad's move to a care center put an end to those hopes. Bill moved to a cottage at Opportunity Village in 2012.
