Dear Karen and Family:
Keith was one of my favourite friends, we had a level of respect and trust for each other, that is hard to find in this day and age. Our shared love of the Lord was also something I remember. He loved to pray! Changes in both our lives have separated us and I’m deeply sorry for your loss, but I am also confident that we will see him again on the other side.
Blessings from Wendy

Karen and family,

I am sorry for your loss.

It was a privilege working with Keith a number of years ago.

He had a wonderful smile and a great sense of humour. Keith loved his family and enjoyed each visit.

Karen, I am so sorry for your loss. I only met Keith once many years ago but I remember how he loved people. He loved the company and I saw how much he was loved by his family. I know there were many laughs during his visits and I hope they continue to give you comfort in the days ahead.
