Six years ago today, Keith left his tired, sick, earthly body and traded it for a new one in Glory.
As I look over the past year, I see mostly joy. We miss him, of course, and always will. But, I see mostly joy.
For those of you who are in our lives now but did not know him (and that is quite a few people), let me tell you what we miss about him:
- his love and commitment to his Lord, which was evident in all he did and said
- his love of family, especially his kids
- his wry sense of humor, which always stood out since he was usually rather reserved
- his graciousness as a host in our home and to all he came in contact with
- and, his devotion to service: in our home, at church, and on the job
And, in memory of Keith, I think it rather fitting that we spent the day serving others…the little boys and I at a family funeral, and the big boys at the teen service weekend at our church.
I think Keith would be pleased.

I know Keith would be happy with how you have nurtured the boys and how they respond so well with you. You know, we remember this day because at the time you were celebrating Keith’s life we were celebrating Bob’s brother’s life and he was a great guy also. Maybe that’s why Bob and I spent most of the day in service at our church doing fall cleanup and then visiting a sick member and taking a teenage boy home after working hard. You and the boys keep on doing just as you are doing, he is pleased with all of it. Love, Sue Date: Sun, 10 Nov 2013 00:26:36 +0000 To: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you…for praying…or loving us…for serving God.
Dear, dear Liz ~ What an inspiration you are to me and I’m sure to many others also. You are a shining example of God working in your life as you live for Him without your dear Keith.
Love, hugs and prayers ~ FlowerLady
