  13. My heart is truly broken regarding the passing of my godfather, Keith. My godfather has been in my life as long as I can remember. He checked on me while I was a student at The Ohio State University and continued to be a mentor to me throughout my life. My godfather was swaggy. He was deeply rooted in his faith; a G-d fearing man. He loved his friends and family and more importantly loved life. I will forever cherish his advice and will miss our conversations. I will miss him. My sincere condolences to the family. I will be praying for you all as you all go through this difficult time. Please know I am here if you need anything. I love you all. Until we meet again, godfather…

  21. “No man is an island,
    Entire of itself;
    Every man is a piece of the continent,
    A part of the main.

    If a clod be washed away by the sea,
    Europe is the less,
    As well as if a promontory were:
    As well as if a manor of thy friend’s
    Or of thine own were.

    Any man’s death diminishes me,
    Because I am involved in mankind.
    And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
    It tolls for thee.”
    -John Donne

    My deepest condolences to you and your family. We all mourn with you.
