Sherry words can’t ever express but we try. My sympathy is with you and your family during this time. I’m praying God carries you through it. Keith was kind and always gentle in conversation when he spoke of his family, and when he would share a bit of advice or something uplifting. He will be missed. May the Almighty strengthen and sustain you.
