These are my 2 special memories of Keith:
I met Gina, Keith's sister when I was in the 4th grade. We just moved to El Paso after our father died. We became best friends. Gina would talk about her big brother Keith who was in the Navy. She would tell me when he came home on leave, he would chase her and hold her down and rub his beard on her face. It would tickle and burn at the same time. Well, I finally got to meet this good looking brother. He came who and he got Gina on the floor rubbing his beard on her. I was laughing so hard. He turned around and said to me with that twinkle in his eye, you think this is funny? Before I knew it, he was rubbing his beard on me. Now I know what Gina meant it tickled and burn at the same time. We were laughing so hard. Gina and I always walked to each other's house and met half way. Maybe a mile or less. It was raining that one day and I was going to walk home. Keith being the gentleman he was, insisted he drive me home. So, Gina and I drove with Keith to my home. He walked me to my door where my sister Sally was waiting for me. The rest is history. My second favorite memory is when my Daughter Deja, who was in the 4th grade and I came to Odessa for a visit. We were leaving and Keith took us to the airport and he stayed with us till we left. Keith and I were alone for a moment. I told him thank you for loving my sister and taking such great care of her. He replied, with this beautiful twinkle in his eye, it's easy, I love her and she takes care of me.
I adore and love you my sister Sally,my niece Michelle and Mr. Z. Gina, my forever sister, and Robbie and of course, your late brother Dwight, you all will forever be in my heart.
As always, we wish you eternally, love, peace and light.
