I grew up with Keith and anytime I was over Bonnie always treated me like I was one of hers. We went to Lake George and fished and had a great time. Even though I did not get to see her very much, everytime she saw me she still treated me like one of her kids. May peace be with you now and our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family. I will miss you and will always love you. Thank you for treating me like your son.

Kay and Keith, I am so sorry for the loss of your dear mother. She was always a gracious host to me when I visited your home, and she made a nice home for the two of you and your dad. I send my love and prayers and hope to see you soon.
