Eloise and family, you have my deepest sympathy. Your dad always kept me posted on how you were doing in life. One thing about your father, he truly loved to hear our choir sing at Ss. Monica and Luke on Sunday. Be blessed.

To Eloise and entire family, THANK YOU for sharing your dad with us at SS MONICA/LUKE. I am so glad I went to church when I was home several weeks ago and got the biggest hug from him. He was such a gentle soul. I know your mom is welcoming him with open arms. May they both RIP.

Mr. Keys will always be considered a HERO for serving our country during a time when fighting for our freedom was essential. You fought in what was considered a devastating and tragic war with honor. Thank you Sir for your bravery, courage and sacrifice. You truly were part of the "Greatest Generation". May God hold you in his loving arms. Rest in Peace.
