  2. My deepest sympathy goes to Karen, Brenda, Kim and Brian. I have many great memories of Keith and all the fun times we all spent together. It has been years since I have seen you girls but understand you are Wonderful young women. Brian, I never met you but heard many good things about you as well. Karen you are a good woman and wish you and the family much Peace with the loss of a fun filled man.

  3. My condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. Losing someone you love is truly difficult and I know Keith will be missed. Please know our Heavenly Father holds out promises that can help us with our sorrow. One such promise is that death soon will be done away with forever (Revelation 21:4) and another promise is that “there is going to be a resurrection.” (Acts 24:15) I pray these promises from God, who cannot lie, (Titus 1:2) bring you comfort.

  4. I love knowing that you are once again able to frown at me in that way only you could, Woody – you will be in my heart always, that will never change!
    Enjoy praising God with the saints and angels; and all that bench racing with friends & heroes till we meet again my beloved friend.

  5. Rest in Peace my friend. I Enjoyed the time we were able to spend with you and you will not be forgotten. Please say hi to my Dad, Jack Petty when you go to that race track in Heaven. Our Thoughts and Prayers will be with your family and loved ones throughout this difficult time.
