Mrs. Keesling was one of my favorite library patrons. I loved her pineapple cake, the black bottom banana bars, and cowboy cookies she baked for us. I think of her every time I use her recipes. She also made me a quilt, a book bag, and a book cover which I continue to treasure. And I was beyond touched when she gifted me all of her cross stitch fabric, floss, and patterns. I guess my favorite memory is her telling me about a cat pin she once thought of buying me. Upon looking at the price, she told me, "Nobody loves you that much!" I laugh every time I think about that. She was a lovely lady and I was blessed to know her while I was manager of the Norwood library from 1992-2007.

I was blessed to be their mailman for many years. Loved Ms Keesling. She always had a smile on her face when she saw me. She gave the best hugs in the world. So sorry for your loss Mr Keesling. She will be missed.
