Mark and Connie I was so blessed have been a part of Keith’s life and to be his caregiver for 6 years. I know when I left there it was so hard for me and I was so happy to have been there and got know him. Even after I left he always knew how to put a smile on my face if I was having a bad even if it was from messaging me on Facebook every now then. I sure will miss those days and I know he is feeling a lot better now and is healed. But it still breaks my heart for you all. See you Saturday sending my love and hugs to all at this time.
