  2. The phone call I received from Nicole on Sunday the 26th took me right back to Dec 5, 1993 my Brother Roger had passed away in his sleep. My heart instantly went into a tight wad of pain tears and unbelievable sadness. NO NO NO I said as my love and absolute concern reached out to Kim, the entire family. Keith was a wonderful man loving kind caring. Cherry & Mike I am sure taught their children everyone to give fabulous hugs to loved ones. One hug from any one of the famiy is never forgotten the feeling will be with you forever. I will miss having my nephew Keith here on earth to hug to listen to. We won’t see him grow old but I know in my heart he will be there always never to be forgotten. I want to thank Cherry and Mike for raising their children to love the way they do. Kim I can’t say the words I can’t find the words to make sense of this but I know how much love he had for you and the kids he was a great husband, father, grandfather. He was a special nephew for us and we will miss him always. We Love you all.

  5. “May hope from God’s Word give your family strength to bear the loss of Mr. Gibson, you have my sympathy at this time. May Jehovah be with you as you await His promise of life without tears of loss and the resurrection of all those sleeping in death. 1 Thessalonians 4:14, Revelation 21:4, and John 11:25, have strengthened me when I have experienced loss, I pray you are comforted by those passages as well.”
