Mr Keim was one of the sweetest persons who came to the primary care office where I practiced until retirement. He took such good care of Carol and Jean. I miss his smile and kind disposition. I know he will be missed. Hugs and prayers for the family.

Ernie has been my brother-in-law for 61 years. He was a hard-working man who loved and cared for my sister Carol and his children, John, Mike, and Jeanie. Ernie has been an important part of our lives for all of those 61 years, and we will miss him so much. I am so grateful that he knew the Lord, and we will see him again.
