Our thoughts are with all your family.
Keith – you were an amazing person and I will forever be a better person having known you. You have made a huge impact in my life from your cheeky smile or ability to just appear out of no where and scare me. The world is a better place for having you in it. My sincerest condolences to the family and friends of one of the greatest men I have ever know. Heaven is blessed to have gained you as an angel.
Thinking of you all at this time. I was remembering all the good times we had. Sure was fun. Rest In Peace Keith. Dearly remembered
