Keith will be missed and city government will never be the same. I talked with Keith about an hour over the phone on Friday. We discussed many possible avenues to improve the cities infrastructure and streets in Live Oak. His last words to me were, Let's meet next week. Give me a call Monday and we'll pick a date and time. I learned from Mr. Thomas Sunday morning while I was teaching the children in Sunday School that he was gone. I just broke up and I couldn't finish properly. We disagreed a lot about certain things during our many meetings. When the meetings ended we always shook hands and sometimes hugged each other. I'll miss Keith, he was the energy needed to get things done. He was open minded and professional.
To Keith's Family, no words of mine can attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. However I do feel that you can take pride in the fact that Keith touched a lot of lives in a positive way. Always positive, even in the face of negativity.
Your hearts must hold deep sadness at the loss of such a great Man, may it also hold the blessings of the life you shared and the Love that will always be a part of you all..
Praying that God will comfort your heart, uplift your spirit and carry you through this time of sadness to a place of Peace.
