My sincere condolences to the Keller family. Dr. Keller was one of the kindest, most compassionate and brilliant doctors you could ever find. He always had a way to make your day with a joke or to ask you how you were doing with a genuine smile. He was a true angel sent from our Lord to help those who suffer from the burden of mental illness. It was a great pleasure to have known and worked with Dr. Keller. The heavens are much brighter now and may God Bless his wonderful family.
