Keith will be remembered for his caring and kindness to us: assisting Barry as he puttered in the yard, visiting and bringing over Tater, watching the residence when we were gone, and being neighborly in general. Your coming and going, especially at 5:30 AM, will be missed – it served as our alarm clock. Wish there had been more times to enjoy our firepits in the backyard. Having a “quiet” neighbor was much appreciated. Praying that you found the peace that you deserve.
