Keith,

My life will never be the same without you in it, even though you’ll never leave my side. You held my hand as a child & guided me & I know you’ll continue to do so. I know you’re with Mom & John Paul now & I’ve gained another angel but another piece of my heart is gone. Until we meet again, fly high Bro! 💙

Lumpy
Hard to add to what’s already been said. I could go with remember the time ....or what about that day we were at ..., but we both know all those times. So I’d just like to say for the 40 plus years we were friends you always had a way of making me feel special on good days and bad . I don’t have to tell you how much I’ll miss you ‘cause you already know.
Love ya
