It makes me smile, picturing Uncle Ned square dancing in Heaven with Mama, trying to keep their angel wings from getting tangled up! I know they are both in Heaven, and that somehow makes the loss easier to bear. Uncle Ned was a fine man, a veteran, a role model, a wonderful father. I am glad he and Aunt Trudy had so many years together, and that they enjoyed their lives to the fullest. My cousins are so lucky to have had him for a Dad.
Rest in Peace, Uncle Ned. Keep smiling that wonderful smile!

We met Trudy and Ned at square dances at Missouri Promenaders and always enjoyed dancing with them. Our thoughts and prayers are with Trudy now.

Ned always had a cheerful personality and a kind word for all square dancers--you to Trudy. He truly will be missed. Take care Trudy and God bless you. Love and prayers.
Ned was such a joy to be around. He and Trudy treated us as if we'd been friends for years! It was truly a blessing to know Ned and we will miss him very much. What an amazing smile!
Trudy, we love you and hope you will find comfort, strength and peace in the promises of your God and the love of your many friends.
First off I thoroughly enjoyed the pictures. I'm so glad Uncle Ned and aunt Trudy enjoyed so many fun years together after his retirement. I wish I could have watched them square dance. God bless him. He'll be dancing in heaven now with my mother, his sister Alice Keenum . He can teach her a few steps. Bless you aunt Trudy and I'm very sorry about uncle Ned's passing. All my love, Cindy Keenum.
Our family is spread so far apart, that I think the last time I saw Uncle Ned was at a family reunion in Clarksdale, MS - probably 15 years ago, and I am really sad about that. He always had a smile on his face and was so fun to talk to. I'm so glad he and Aunt Trudy had their many years of square dancing. I always thought that was absolutely awesome that he did that. Rest in peace, Uncle Ned. Dance your way right into Heaven where you belong. He will be reunited with Mama, Aunt Jean and Aunt Margaret. Here's a photo of the Keenum nieces and nephews.
Love you always, Cheryl Keenum Walston (Meridian, Idaho)
Ned was a dear friend and a fun guy to be around. We met Ned through Square Dancing. We danced quite a bit over the last 25 years. We enjoyed all those times and many more memorable ones. He will truly be missed but he is with God now. We love you Ned. Jerry & Joyce
