  1. Thoughts and prayers

    Very sorry to hear of Keith’s passing. He was such a sweet and charismatic guy. Always enjoyed our conversations when we would get together with friends. My thoughts and prayers going out to his family and friends during this difficult time

  2. Joanne, I am deeply sadden by the loss of your son, Keith. I use to work on East wing in labor / delivery at the old CMH hospital. I would often float in the ER when staff was short.I remember many times of you speaking about your son. May God be with you.

  3. So deeply sadden.

    “Joanne, I am deeply saddened about the loss of Keith. My deepest condolences go out to you, the family and Keith’s closest friends. I pray to the Lord to give you strength to cope with his loss and to be able to pass through this difficult time.” Since the news I have done nothing but thought of the many times we shared together as kids growing up. Playing baseball (Go Greenleaves!!), football, sleep overs, riding dirt bikes and many laughs. We shared some of these the last time I saw him when Mom passed back in June. He will be missed.

  4. Joanne, Kim and I are sorrowed by your loss and our payers are for you to find strength in knowing that Keith and you are loved. It seems like yesterday that we were all at the baseball park and you were yelling that you would buy Keith a pizza if he got a hit. We have so many memories of Keith, Johnny and you.

    They tell us that when we get in a bad spot in life that we only have two choices… to fight or run… remember there is a third choice…you can always just float for awhile and you will come up for air. We and many more love you.

  5. Rest Peacefully Till We Meet Again

    My prayers and condolences to Mrs. Palmore, other family members, and friends. I met Keith in the 6th grade. I remember the day we met…I was feeling down…thinking and staying to myself. Keith was talking with some other peers as I stood quietly by watching everyone interact. Keith called out, “Hey Tina…smile”. Then motioned his fingers like he was taking a picture. I started laughing, which lifted my spirits. I had no idea who he was. I asked him his name and said Keith. I asked him how he knew my name. He said we have a class together. Later in the day, I saw him in class…he was smiling and waving. I did the same. The teacher took attendance. I hear “John Palmore”. Keith says, “Here”. I said, “I thought your name was Keith”. He said, “Yeah that’s me too” with a huge smile on his face.

    Keith’s smile is what I have always remembered about him. Through the shock and sadness, I will smile because that’s how I remember Keith. I will continue to hold on to his smile in my heart until we meet again.

  6. Friend

    JoAnne, Shannon and I are so very sorry to hear of Keith’s passing. We never saw him when he wasn’t smiling with a kind word to share. Please know that we are keeping you in thoughts and prayer at this very difficult time.

  7. Joanne, I am so saddened to hear about Keith, may God give you strength, peace and a heart of understanding. I am here for you and I am only a phone call away. I love you and know I am praying for you my friend! Love you always Regina

  8. Prayers of love

    I just wanted to say how sorry I am to hear about Keith. He was such a special boy to us when we were your neighbors. Peter sends his love and prayer as we all do. God bless you.
