Please know I am in deep, excruciating pain that I can not even begin to explain. All the outpouring of texts, messages and posts that are happening are not unnoticed. I honestly can not even read the texts or fb messages yet. I hope to actually bring myself to read them and answer them. Just know I feel your love. I am surrounded by my family, Keith's family who is my family as well, his children and our son. I was loved unconditionally by a man for almost 19 years of my life. I do not exaggerate in the slightest when I say Keith always put himself second and loved me with everything in him. When Kaleb was born he then placed himself third. He loved us whole heartedly and would do anything for us. He would do anything for a laugh, he was unapologetically himself, he never cared what anyone thought about him, he loved his family and children with all his heart, he was loud, he was ridiculous, if he didn't pick on you then you worried he didn't like you, he was my husband, he was Kaleb's snuggle buddy. This is what we've lost and I'm trying to come to terms with that. I miss him so deeply and with every ounce of my being. I hear his voice calling me baby and asking for another kiss in my head, I play our last conversations over and over, I long to just have him next to me again. I have no real encouraging words or anything important to learn in these words. I just see all these texts, posts and messages and know you are all worried and sad. I just ache to answer them all with the person knowing what he meant to us, how he loved us and what he was to our son. I hope my words do him justice and convey how incredibly important and dear he is to Kaleb and I. I loved him with all my heart and it is shattered. I knew with our age difference it was most likely that I would go through this and made sure before I said yes to marrying him that in my heart I thought it would be worth that pain.... Baby... it was. It was worth it and I would do it again in a heart beat.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Keith's honor to Crosier-Pearson Cleburne Funeral Home 512 North Ridgeway Drive, Cleburne, TX 76033.

I remember the first time I met Keith, lol, I thought he was going to hand me a service manual on how to take care of Kaleb. How many times he repeated ," are you sure you can do this". I knew right then his love for Kaleb. I loved hearing all the stories Kaleb had about his summer with his dad and how he wished school hadn't started back because he knew his dad was going to be lonely for him. Keith will be missed but forgotten. Our love and prayers for you and my sweet Kaleb.
