    Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of Keith. Praying that you are comforted by the God of all comfort, Jehovah, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God, 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4. Please draw close to God and He will draw close to you and help you through your time of sorrow, James 4:8 and Psalms 55:22. See for more scriptural encouragement.

    My heart is broken for you all. Keith was more than a cousin, he was also my friend. He was the best of the best. Quick with a smile, and could make everyone laugh. He stood up for what he believed and had a gentle heart for all. I am so glad he found you Jennifer, he loved you with all he had. Drew, he was so proud of you and you were always his mini me. He loved you so very much. I will miss him so very much and carry him in my heart. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. I love you and I am always here if you need me.
