Another sad loss to those of us raised in Gibson with the Walker family. The Keeler and Walker families were intricately linked our whole lives. Our mothers were always having coffee and “straightening”out all of us! Marsha pretty much taught me how to drive as we went to Greg’s JV football games and even went with me to take my road test. Our brothers were linked through the Gibson drill team and all families spent many hours at the Fire Station. And we watched ”Greggy” grow up in the upstairs apartment. We all will be eternally linked and send our love and sympathies to all. We only wish we could personally pay our respects but you are in our hearts!
