Hey guys I'm really sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She was always so kind and thoughtful to me and my siblings. Back when I worked at your dad's gas station I truly felt a part of the Keepers family. I remember dropping off the nightly deposit and your mom always greeting me with a smile. I know it's a tough time right now,but put your trust in Our Lord Jesus and He will get you through it. My sincere condolences. Much love to all. Jim

Dear Keepers Family, So sorry for your mother's untimely death. I do believe I knew her years ago from somewhere. Very kind lady. It was an honor and a privilege to have met her. May she rest in peace and may you find comfort at this time. With Deepest Sympathy, Kim
