    Hey Dad, I miss you a lot. I got to church every Sunday and Wednesday, but today I brought your Bible with me. I opened it and I just looked... I opened to where you signed your name and just kept going over it with my fingers as if I could just feel you through it. As I did that I closed my eyes and just imaged us being in church on those Sunday mornings, me being in your arms, you smiling at me it was all just so perfect.. I went through the Bible just to see if you left anything behind or something and I came over a verse and it really made since and it just made me think extremely hard. I miss you dad and this sucks. -Surgarbaby❤️

    Daddy, tomorrow marks a decade... it hurts so bad everyday without you. I think about you, a lot. There isn’t a day goes by that I don’t wish you were here, life would be different. It’s crazy, how I’ve lived my life without you. When I was 19 I moved to Florida because I wanted to be in YOUR state I thought maybe it would bring me closer to ya. It didn’t. It made things a little worse. It made me think of everything you won’t be here for, but now that I’m back where I belong in the state I wanna be in, I see that I should be cherishing the times I had with you. I just grieve so much because of everything your missing out on... it sucks so bad daddy it hurts me to know that my baby sister doesn’t remember much, she doesn’t have much to cherish and I’m so far we’re not as close as I want to be. .. your missing out on so much and I just wish you were here for us . I love you forever, I’m sorry this sounded “Ranty” . I just miss you with all heart.. love always fe❤️

    Hey daddy it's your little girl.❤️ I miss you a lot, I really wish you were still here because life would be so different. You'd really be proud of the young women I'm becoming dad, and Felicia you'd be so proud of even though she doesn't make the smartest of decisions sometimes but I mean that's life ya know. She's in collage now and I'm soooo proud of her for that. I think about you and prey about you every night daddy. I wish I could talk to somebody about you, but unfortunately fe doesn't live anywhere near meantmore (I don't like to talk about it over the phone) and I can't talk to mom about you because she just won't talk to me or fe about you.. I understand it's really hard, but I feel that I should know more than I know.. I barely remember you daddy and I hate that. I know your never going to see or read this, but someone will. I love you so much daddy and I miss you sooo much.❤️ -sugarbaby

    keith, you are still such a big part of my life. i see you , i feel you everywhere. i don't know how to let you go. not a day goes by that you are not in my thoughts. some days it's a blessing that you are not here to see the things i see, other days i don't have your understanding to share my feelings. i miss you, is not saying enough. what i feel is beyond words. your sisters and brothers have been such a help to me. their pain is so great, and i can't help them. i don't know where to start. i love you with all my being.

    I want to thank everyone for their support during this trying time in my life. Keith was not only my son, but he was my best friend, the only person in this world that I could confide in without any judgements attached. I don't know how I will make it thru the rest of my journey without him. Thank you all for loving him. I just wish he could have known how many people really did care. Thank-you Kathie Holland (mom)

    Keith, I hope you and your family are doing well. I know this has to be one of the lowest times in your life. What can one really say to ease the pain? I can only encourage you and your family to grieve with God. He can understand more than any other what it is like to experience such loss. THe loss of a Son. He loves you very much. If you need anything Keith, give me a call.

    All the best. Frank.

    I just wanted to say I am very sorry for your loss. Keith and I had some good times on the golf course and just hanging out. I will miss him. He was also a great uncle to my kids, he always made time to hang out and play with them. They were fortunate enough to spend time with him when we were down in november and he gave them some great memories to hold on to. Thank you Keith. We love and miss you.
