    Dearest Keith, I am the bride of your youth, you were 24 when we were married. You were a joy to live with.....we laughed and played, we danced, we separated, came together, cried......nine years together....we lost each other for 25 years....our chance re-union....then came our greatest blessing!....we forgave each other. We have been in each others lives for the last ten years. You are a huge part of my life. You are a kind, loveable and sweet man. You are honorable and last but certainly not least, you are a man of God. I thank and praise the Lord for taking you home. You have suffered so much in your life. I love you into eternity. I will see you again, Kathy

    Keith, God blessed me with your laughter, our love and care for one another and our great heartfelt talks. We shared childhood memories and laughed often about the games we used to play with Lois and Sarah. Although tears were shed when you called to tell me you were ready to go "home", I understood because of the pain and loneliness you were dealing with. I knew I would see you again. Until then., remember what I always said. Love you forever and see you later! Your sister and partner in crime, Elaine

    Uncle Keith is a very special family member to us. We joined in on his and Mom’s calls and laughed so much when they would share their memories of growing up on 400 East Pierce Street with Lois and Sara. Mom always shared your funny news with us and even the several times when you said you were ready to go home. We will miss you and that deep laugh of yours. Stephen and I are so thankful to have been a very big part of your life. What a great uncle you have been to us. Love to you always, your niece Heaven Le Lane Reed

    Dear Uncle Keith, Thank you for being in our lives and the greatest of times while you were living here in Hartselle. We all had a great time with you and enjoyed you and Mom sharing the things you two got into together while growing up. Lots of laughs were shared and even the secrets were told that Grandma Corder never knew about. We are so glad you shared your recipes with Mom. She still makes them to this day. Thanks for being a great and fun uncle. Love from Codey, Chasity, Destiny, Austin and Audrey Lane

    My last Memory of my brother Keith It was so good to be able to see you before Jesus took you home. Just a day after our returned to Atlanta.The opportunity to be a Blessing while you were in Springfield Hospital. You even amazed your nurse when you stated you were wanting watermelon. The nurse said. I have never heard that before. I guess it was all set in Gods plan. The conversation you and Elaine had going down memory lane about Beardstown watermelon. When we approached your hospital door and Tina said "Uncle Keith" we got your watermelon. You laughed. and was so happy. I can still see you clapping your hands. When they brought you in spaghetti and you stated it stunk I agreed. Now the mashed potatoes with gravy and chopped steak looked good. Watching Television together. Tina stated she was going to un hook everything and take you out of the hospital. Tina had you laughing as well as nurses. It was a blessing to hear my daughter ask you if you accepted Jesus. I knew you had but Tina didn't. Tina even asked you if she could pray for you. It was hard to leave you when you told us you wanted us to stay. You must of been lonely. The Nurses at the desk informed us you perked up while we were there. Hearing you say I love you Sis like you always do will be cherished in my heart . I know you put up a good fight with Having Atri -Fib C.O.P.D. Congested heart failure and C-Diff. The black and blue spots from all the Blood thinner to keep blood clots forming. Weighing 114 lbs I do not regret not one moment we shared together. Hearing the laughter. Showing you sacrificial love by fulfilling your need with watermelon , hug and I love you. Knowing it would not be long before you told Jesus you were ready . When you called me when I got back to Atlanta and said good by. I told you Just think you will be dancing with mom , Phyllis. You stated Sara. I said yes. I remember You , Elaine and I would talk about the Gorilla games we plaid. You were really good. The big worm you put in my hair . That Cajun Coubion you would fix. No one cannot take those Precious memories from me. You fought the good fight of Faith as well playing Gorilla. So little brother I dedicated a song in remembrance of you. If I could only Imagine. No More pain You had a physical death . Your spirit lives on .I love you little brother God be the Glory.
