Michelle, Sean, Herbert and all other family members. Keith and I had many good times together some traveling and some watching boxing onTV. I will miss him dearly for the good phone conversations we had and he planned on visiting last Christmas. I remember when Keith traveled to Los Angeles, California with me and I was driving a stick shift, he scratched every gear very hard. But he took up the slack for me. He wasn’t only a friend of mine but a brother too. He left a legacy and we will miss him. From my family to yours, Gods blessings!!
Thank you Sam! He shared so many good memories of you and your family with me. He appreciated the hospitality in his coming to America experience. Thanks for that!!
Sam! He has told me so much about you. I just want to thank you for his positive, coming to America experience. Thank you for that. It has always been appreciated. God Bless.

Thank you so much Liz in being by my side to the end of your uncles life! Your support meant everything!
Thank you Liz you for being here by our side to the end! You are an Angel!
“When I think of death, and of late the idea has come with alarming frequency, I seem at peace with the idea that a day will dawn when I no longer be among those living in this valley of strange humors.
I can accept the idea of my own demise, but I am unable to accept the death of anyone else.
I find it impossible to let a friend or relative go into that country to no return.
Disbelief becomes my close companion, and anger follows in its wake.
I answer the heroic question ‘Death, where is thy sting?’ with ‘It is here in my heart and mind and memories.’”
~ Maya Angelou, When I Think of Death
