Today is Keith’s 46th Birthday

It still doesn’t seem real. Keith was killed in an automobile accident 9 weeks ago and it just doesn’t seem like it could have happened. Keith and I shared a lot together in almost 45 years. We never in all those years had any problems that caused us to be at odds. There were plenty of times that we didn’t agree but it never caused us to be mad at each other. I am proud of that. I see so many families today where brothers and sisters and even parents and their children are mad at each other and won’t even speak. That never happened with me and Keith. We always loved each other and we always supported the other. I always knew that if I needed anything Keith would have been the first person by my side.  One of the hardest things about Keith not being here is knowing that I have to face the future without him. We talked a lot about what we would go through when something happened to mom or dad and now when that time comes Keith won’t be here to walk through it with me. I am so thankful to God that we had almost 45 years together. It truly is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all. I love you Keith and miss you more today than I can express. I can’t wait to see you again and I know it won’t be very long.

July 27th is your 46 birthday and the first one you are celebrating in heaven.

  1. You and your family are in my prayers today. Keith will
    live forever in your hearts. He is just a “blink” away, now a part of that great cloud of witnesses cheering each of you on. “Go, Ronnie, Go!” “You can do it Mom!” “Way to go Dad!” “Don’t give up, don’t quit!” “I Love you all, Jesus loves you more.” And with him is your grandmother, Judy and those who have gone on to claim the victory!
