Heaven received a true angel with Keith's passing. I was fortunate enough to be with Keith and his family over the past few months and his strength and faith while facing this sickness was amazing. His family took care of his every need and never wavered. Janice and the kids are all truly amazing individuals. This entire family has certainly been an inspiration to me. May God wrap His loving arms around you during this difficult time.
