Thanks from the Keen family

Carol, Jeremy, Katelyn, Loren and Maison Keen

We have been so blessed to have the love and support of friends, the community, teachers, businesses, and organizations during this difficult time for our family. We all miss Billy so much and his death has left a huge hole that we have had to learn to live with every day. We have been able to find some peace and love in places where we had not looked before, or recognized what was there to the extent it is. We are thankful we are a part of this community, and that we are there for others and they have been here for us.

Thanks to our friends for helping immediately after his passing, for the continued support and meals we received, for the calls to see if we needed anything, for the understanding when we didn’t answer the phone, for the “just dropping by” visits, the requests to go for a walk, invitations to take the girls for a treat, and for just being there in person and in thought. It has meant so much to us, and sometimes words get lost in tears.

Thank you to everyone that supported our family through the Keen n’ Kaboodle Fundraiser. It was again a reminder of what this community does so well – support and love each other. Billy and I moved here and made this our home; we raised our family here, made this community our family, and now the children and I feel so blessed with the community turning out to show us so clearly that we belong. Thank you so much for everything – for the idea of the fun evening, the time and effort of creating the evening, all the donations, everyone who attended and bid on the items offered, everyone who couldn’t make it but called Kim and asked how to help, the Inn at Keystone for the facility and everyone that helped to make this night happen. While moving around the rooms during the evening, I could feel Billy was grateful to everyone that we were being looked after.

By the way, Billy would have loved the silent auction.
