Memories Timeline


  1. I wish to tell Keiths family that I am so sorry that his life ended so soon. I wish that we could have stayed in touch with one another, maybe things could have been different for him. He was really good to me, trying to do everything he was able to do. He has and always will have a special place in my heart forever. I hope that he is now at peace in his mind and heart. Again I am so sorry to all of Keiths family, and that you all find peace. I love you always Keith!

  2. I am so sorry to the family for the sudden loss of their loved one. He was taken way to soon. He will be in heaven by Gods side looking down and protecting all his family and friends. Praying for peace and comfort.

  3. Dear Family, I am so sorry for your great loss! This is such a sad time and only time, faith, family, and prayer can heal the pain. Each of you are in my prayers for comfort and strength at this time. Sincerely, Peggy Tupper (Shannon Higginbothams neighbor)
