I remember dear Keith as a slight,blonde,pleasant boy of 7 - he came to live with us prior to going to the USA. I never ever thought that this was the last time I was ever going to see that smiling face.Rest in Peace.

I can almost hear your Mom Tuesday afternoon "somebody call Keith, somebody call Keith to get over here." Never wanting anyone to miss a good time. I'm sure it was a great reunion. Keith you had a Heart of Gold and your family,friends, and neighbors will miss you dearly.

Keith (Monk) was a special friend in my life. Monday night football at Tony's apartment, softball, Memphis State basketball games, it all seems like yesterday. I wish we could have gotten together one last time. It is my loss that we didn't.
The life of the departed is placed in the memory of the living.
Go with God my friend.
