Not sure what to say?

Dear Keith & Family,
Growing up it was always a treat to have Hoyt, Jackie, and the boys stop by the house to visit. Hoyt was always one of our favorite people. He would always make you laugh. We loved him dearly. We have missed him for a long time. Now he will be well and happy again and he will be with a host of friends in heaven. Keith, we are thinking of you.

Keith, I am so sorry to hear about my old friend, Hoyt. After 29 years, he was still a breath of fresh air thinking of him! He made every day on the job exciting!!! I will never forget him, especially his charisma and the way that he pronounced my name...SHA-RELLL, with that Shakesperian tone(Lol)!! Unforgettable!! R.I.P. Hoyt,fly high now, you're spirit is free!!! Keith, may God comfort you & your family in your toughest hours.

God bless,
Cheryl Davis-Torain

Keith and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Hoyt was a dear friend of my mother and father as I was growing up, as well as a relative. He was a happy, fun-loving person before he got sick. I hope he is at peace now. I know Jackie, Mama and Daddy, and a host of others are greeting him now on the other side.
