It’s been my honor to be a close friend with all of you for so many years. Keith was a great husband, father, brother, son, uncle and friend. If I covered them all. The Cogar unit is strong and have many who will lift them up during this trying time. Such a big hole left from this terrible disease. Much love to all.
