Even though I knew this was coming, it is with much sadness I write this. "Uncle Keith" was a guy who loved his family and friends, could always make you laugh and had a story to tell. He and my late husband, Larry, were forever "brother-in-laws" and I am happy we were fortunate to have him in our lives. Always thinking of others, always so generous. I will be gone, unfortunately during the time of the celebration of his life but I want to extend my heartfelt sympathy to his whole family and all friends who knew him. He will be missed. Happy Trails to You. Ride off on your horse into the sunset but your memory on this earth will with us forever. God Bless you "Uncle Keith"!
