I went to school with Keith, we graduated 1967. I remember Keith as a good friend and easy to talk to. My most recent remembrance of his was this past summer talking to him about our upcoming 50th class reunion. I was sorry when he said he wouldn't be able to make it. Through a phone call and letter we communicated but couldn't convince him to come. We missed him being there. My thoughts and prayers to his family and please know I loved Keith as a very good friend. May he Rest In Peace. With Love Janet Bennett Robins
