PLEASE know that your family is in our thoughts and prayers during this time. Tom was a GREAT cousin! I will treasure all my memories of time spent growing up, from puzzle competitions, water balloon fights, popping caps on the wood flooring, canoeing, ping pong, jacks, swim parties, skipping stones, card games, picnics, and family reunions. And this is only a few of the things. He will always be with us. With our deepest sympathies and our LOVE, Kate Keets and the entire Richard and Sue Keets Family.
