Condolence Messages

  1. Thinking of you all.
    While words fail to capture the pain of losing a love one, God sees everything he hears the groans of the oppressed and revives the hearts of the crushed. May God sustain you at this time of great sadness.

    It’s so hard to lose someone you love, especially a child and when it happens so unexpectedly, always remember that you have the love and concern of family and friends. So many people care about you and the family and are keeping each and everyone of you in our thoughts and hearts and in our prayers. The Brooks Family,

  3. I want to offer my condolences. Keith had a smile that would light up a room and a personality to match. He had a warm soul. I live in Georgia now or I would come to services. However, I will always have fond memories of him.

    We got to know Keith Jr.’s son Ezra when we attended the 8th grade D.C. trip with our daughter. Ezra is a wonderful friend to our daughter as he shows her respect and makes her laugh as they navigate the growing challenges of High School together with Jesus and all their classmates. We’re so sorry for your loss yet are grateful to know that Man-Man and the Lord are smiling as they see Ezra growing in “holy dapper” – increasing in stature, wisdom, & favor with God and man, just like Jesus! (Luke 2:52)
    With love,
    The Wilhoite Family

    Wow dad, I never thought in a million years that I would have to say goodbye. I miss you so much I cry my eyes out day in night. I remember how you made me laugh, I had so much fun growing up with you, I wish you just stayed a lotta longer. I’m hurt badly, there’s a hole in my heart where you’re supposed to be and it hurts no waking up to you stepping on me or throwing something at me to get up. All I can do now is just cry me face out. Can you just come back and stay a lot longer and not leave again.

    I’m just now receiving confirmation about your sudden transition after talking to your pops. Now I know what you were trying to tell me in those dreams and visions. Thankfully I’m blessed with spiritual gifts that make it so that you, Gumby, Kevin, Pa Pa, and Johnny are still here even though your bodies have died!
