I will miss you Uncle Keith! Every time you saw me you would bring me peanut M&Ms and we would throw the football because you were amazed with how perfect I could throw. I love you so much!

I loved my trips to the beach with you Aunt Donna and the kids growing up. As an adult, I loved coming to Ft. Myers and partying with you and the family. You always had a smile and loved to laugh. I love you and will miss you!
