Dear Van & Family, Berk´s passing is sad news. I think of his sly grin as he adds a comment to another joke and I miss his humor. I think if his wisdom and skill as he was often able to steer me in the right direction as to the repair of whatever went broken. I wish I could build a play house for my kids like he did for his! May all these memories of Berk´s finest qualities comfort you and remind you to share them as he did. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Lovingly, DeEtta Garnette Breitwieser

My dearest Mrs. Keck, Mr. Marty and Mrs. Stephanie Keck and family members; I am so terribly sad with the news of Mr. Keck's passing. Mr. Keck and my dad, Bill Carter worked together many years at Pittsylvania Hardware. You Mrs. Keck were my beloved instructor in LPN School and You, Mr. Marty and Stephanie Keck ,were my instructors in RN School. I owe you all so much. I wish I could return an "inth" degree of what you have given to me back to you in comfort at this sad, sad time. Mr. Keck was a fine gentleman. My dad thought the world of him and always had the highest regard for him. I pray the Lord's arms of comfort will enfold you and help you through these following days, weeks and months ahead. May God bless you each and every one.
