Dear Constance,

While sitting at my computer I was thinking of people that I used to know. For some reason Keith's name popped into my head. When I entered his name in the search bar I was shocked to see his obituary. I knew Keith and his family when they were members along with my family at the First Presbyterian Church in Canonsburg, PA.

I would like to express my deepest condolences to you and your family . We do not know when it will be our time to be called home. I know that we will all be with our loved ones in heaven. My God grant you and your family the peace that passes all understanding.
