I remember Keith's caring back in the 1970ies when Keith came and finished combining our soybeans when our combine was broke. He graciously did this for at least 2 years. He was a great neighbor and fellow dairyman and farmer. Always great to talk to at the co-op in Bippus.
He will be greatly missed. Your family has our sympathy.
