I remember Keith mostly as a kid. Growing up and coming to visit his mom and dad Elaine and Lee. I always looked forward to the times I could visit my cousins and do the things kids do together. The summers the Christmases just being with Keith and Kevin added a lot to my life growing up. As life went on and we went our separate ways I always remember this playful boy who always made me feel so welcome in his home
