    My thoughts and prayers for you and your family during this difficult time.

    I had the pleasure of working with Keith the last 4 years… Our favorite line the last year when the Regional Office would send us something to fix was, “What would Verna do”? Keith you will be greatly missed. Until we meet again.

    I am so sorry to hear of Keith’s passing. We were in the same Searcy high school graduating class. I had many classes with Keith but my favorite memories are him playing drum cadence for the drill team (Lionsteppers). I loved that march!!
    I hope you find comfort and peace in the shadow of God’s wings.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. I remember him smiling and laughing a lot in school and I also remember him as being one of the brightest students in all the classes I shared with him. I know he will surely be missed.
