I was very Saddened and Upset to hear the news of the passing of this great human being! I would often stop in with my recycling bags and be warmly greeted by Keith, every time! I would stay and chat with my 'buddy' over the years. Never a dull moment, never an unkind word from him! I am
very Shocked by this, although I must admit that about a couple of months ago, when I stopped in, I saw Keith and he was unusually quiet and not smiling - not like him at all. I put it down to he must be feeling under the weather, or heard some bad news about loved ones or something. He was very pensive. I remember going back to my car, and somehow being worried and could not let that feeling go. So when I went to the center today, and saw the notice on the front door telling of their loss, I was very down myself. I still can't believe it. I just hope that he did not suffer - he would not have deserved that.
My condolences to his Family, all who knew and loved this very congenial and humorous person, and all around good soul.
And Keith, may God be cradling you in His loving arms! Rest in Peace 'Bro!!
