Dear Wendy and Julie,
My sincere sympathy to you and your family. Over the years I far prefer remembering all the wonderful events you let Quaker Bonnet be a part of. Your generosity and grace always made us feel like we belonged. Keith especially was always charming and helpful.
It has been 40 years of Alford/ Adams/Genco events. This will be a particularly difficult Thanksgiving without Keith.

It is with deep sadness that I offer my heartfelt sympathies to all Keith’s family for their loss. Keith was one of my best boyhood friends, from 5th grade through our bachelor years. He will persist in happy memories of Lake Simcoe, and learning to drive at Lochevan, and his companionship on long walks talking about more than we could ever know. My sympathy to Wende and Gail and Bryant.
