  2. Art, Betsy& family, my deepest condolences for your loss. I admired Keith for his sense of humor and profound determination. Keith will be missed. He was one of the funniest people I knew and could always make me laugh. My heart goes out to you and your family and all of the Avalon residents.

  3. Dear Elizabeth, We will miss Keith’s sense of humor, and his enthusiasm for music and performing. I remember when he dressed as Garth Brooks for the Best Buddies dance a couple of years ago. I’m so glad my mom had the chance to meet him, and to dance with you both that day! I will also remember how much he loved animals, and how he enjoyed visits from Tango and Barnaby Jones. We will all miss you, Keith! Love, Sarah, Brooke, Nancy and Chuck Carroll, and Tango and Barnaby Jones
