My thoughts and prayers are with you Paul, Kathy, & Betty. I have fond memories of Keith, Betty, Jim, & I playing together at both of our homes when we were little.
May the joys of knowing he’s in heaven give you comfort and strength!

I am sorry for your loss. I worked with Keith for 10 years. He was always very kind to me. He had a tender heart and shed tears with me, and many others, when my little girl was diagnosed with brain cancer. Our final conversation ended with us praying for him and him praying for us. I’m sorry his life was cut short.
I'm going to miss you my friend... We had some very good conversations and laughs over the last several years. Rest in peace my friend until we meet again.
My condolences to Paul, Kathy and his sister Betty. We can be thankful Keith grew up in a Christian home knowing what our goal is and he has now achieved it.
