My condolences to Keith's family. Keith and I were the best of friends in our senior year at Ritenour. We were in the work study program and got out of class at noon and went to our part time jobs. At the time thought that was greatest thing the world.
After Keith came from Vietnam we drifted apart, I thought about him alot over the years. Nice to see what lovely family he has..RIP old friend.
