Thank you to all those kind persons who sent flowers, cards, food, messages and called or visited me and the children at the time of Keith's death. We have been overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and concern for our family during these past days of grieving. We knew he was well known, but hearing from so many in the community with their personal stories of him and their experiences with him has been truly a nurturing experience. A special thanks to the Knights of Columbus their presence at the funeral home during visitations and at the Immaculate Conception Church for the funeral service. They were his brothers, both in life and in death. Rick Goble's attention to the needs of our family is greatly appreciated. He was, as Keith always said, "The last one to let him down."

I often get on your website and look at Ayden's picture, obituary and what people have wrote. Ayden was so beautiful and perfect, so healthy and so happy.

Dear Rick, We always knew of course that we would go to Goble's when we died. Little did I know just what that would mean. From the start your very personal concern and caring made us feel comfortable. You were sensitive and kind as you directed us toward what we had to do, giving us time to make the necessary choices as you took care of the arrangements. No one else could have provided the excellence and expertise in the way you handled every part of the funeral. For this we will always be grateful. You truly do personify the word class. Thank you again.
