I worked with keith at Walmart. He was such a sweet young man. We would laugh and have fun on our job. He never said a harmless word to or about anyone. My tears are rolling down my cheeks this is a hard pill to swallow indeed. Sending condolences and prayers to his family.

Keith, the first time i saw you, you had long hair and the first thing i thought was "this dude is a viking" . The first time we hung out was at Erics. We played guitar hero and we played on Erics guitars. You also got me into Dragonforce that day. Hearing this news really sucks and breaks my heart. I only knew you a short while but you were an awesome dude.

Sherrill, I am so very sorry for the loss of your son Keith. These words seem so inadequate to express my sympathies. Please know I am lifting you in prayer that you may find some peace and comfort in your precious memories.

I have known Keith since kindergarten, not something I can say about many folks. Keith and I always shared an interest in games and music, starting our first band together in high school. I remember always being amazed at his talent- I had picked up guitar several years before him but he surpassed me quickly- quite the natural. I am so terribly sorry for your loss and hope at some point we can find a way to celebrate his beautiful life.

Keith was a kind and gentle soul. I was too talkative to get very close to Keith. I know he was a handsome towhead with beautiful blond curls and a very talented musician. He had a place and purpose in this world left vacant too soon. He will be missed by those who loved him but his memory will live on...
