I have so many wonderful memories of Keith. He was my best friend in the world for years. He picked me up every morning & drove me to school. After school we often went to the mall for pizza. On Monday nights we would go to his mom’s house & throw football in the front yard until it was almost game time & then go watch the Monday Night Football game. We kept a paper towel handy in case there was a call that should have been made & we had to throw the flag. We watched his team, the Cowboys, win a few different Super Bowls together & he loved to remind me that the Broncos had never won a Super Bowl. The only times I ever rode on a motorcycle was w/Keith driving & me hanging on for dear life. Once he got his apartment we would hang out there & he would fix the best spiced shrimp. He was an amazing cook. We went to the lake together, trips to the beach, King’s Dominion, concerts including our favorite band, Guns N Roses. Keith loved to wait until Christmas Eve to do all his Christmas shopping. We used to get the ‘buy one get one free’ pizzas from Little Caesars & sit on the curb right outside the restaurant & each eat a whole pizza before we left. We used to walk through the woods behind his dad’s house just talking & joking & laughing. Keith had an amazing laugh & an incredible sense of humor. Keith was so charismatic & personable. Countless times I heard him say “You’re like me...” before proceeding to tell me the way he felt we both shared the same opinion about whatever topic we were discussing. We’ve been in car accidents together, we’ve been stranded on the side of the road, & even tried to carry on a conversation w/cows. We went to the dollar movies, Friday night high school football games, played pool, watched the Liberty football team practice, walked the mall & so many other wonderful adventures each w/a story to tell. Keith was a one of a kind, very special person who will be greatly missed by so many. I’m so thankful to have known him.
