You will truly be missed by all. I will miss you for whenever you would pass by my house when I was a young boy and took the time to speak or just blow horn when going or leaving your sister Doris house.I take the pleasure of knowing you accepted me for me. I will always have my special memories of you, especially the ones from your last birthday party until our last conversation in your yard with you surrounded by all your flowers. MAY YOU REST IN PEACE, ANGEL !!!!! Missing you Keith
