We are sad not to be attending services for Keith. He & Irene were wonderful neighbors & the visits we had after they moved to Edinburg always provided smiles & laughter! They were extremely happy for & proud of their family. We enjoyed getting the updates during our visits. John & I missed Keith on a surprise visit last winter, but Keith called & the men caught up. God be with you all. Have to feel Keith is reunited with Irene & perfectly content in Heaven.
