First, condolences to Keith’s family. very sorry for your loss. I can only imagine the times you enjoyed his special blend of intellect, comedy, pranks and love of family.

I was fortunate to experience these during our years in high school and having some of the best times to date.

Many times since, I have shared the stories of our fun times to numerous people, mostly my kids.

The HS years with Keith and all our classmates had proven to be a source of strength for my life still today.

So Rest In Peace old buddy, you’ll be missed.

Dear smart, kind and funny Keith. I know you have struggled with your health for years but that never dampened your joy of living. I had the joy of your friendship and Yuelaunda when we met at work in 1983. Your kindness was the first thing I noticed as you stepped up to another employee who was not being very nice to me and made a pointed and funny joke. Then you blinded me with your intellect and I knew nothing would hold you back. I watched you rise at Sprint and be loved also my your peers. I never expected you to go before me. Heaven gained yet another angel. I will miss you as will my Dan who you also welcomed into your family. Until we all meet up yonder again. Hugs dear Keith..

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
