I am Dr. Louis Keating’s daughter. We came to your house to get a Christmas tree before the lake was filled up. I remember you having waffle cookies and they were so good. I also remember Mr. Joe coming to my fathers visitation and thinking what an awesome person to come that many years later. I’m so sorry for your loss but thank you for the wonderful memories of such a wonderful person. May God wrap his loving arms around you during this difficult time.
