Living Faith: Mehrkens' simple coffin revealed a rich soul
At his funeral Mass, he was named a spiritual giant, and despite his relatively small bodily stature, no one present would've argued it about the Rev. Bill Mehrkens. During his March 3 burial, the unpretentiousness of this holy soul showed. "Just a plain, wooden casket?" my daughter...
