I remember as a child going with my dad and mom, Dannis and Gail, to Sonny's camp on D'Arbonne and fishing for brim. He was fun to be around and I have nothing but fond memories of him. He will be missed by many.

The Entire Keith Family, My heart goes out to each and everyone of you. Mr. Keith was one of the most kindest and friendliest man that I had the privilege to know. My brother, Russell, and I played on his Dr. Pepper baseball team in the 60's and we had so much fun because of time he took to really coach us on the game of baseball. I am not the only one that remembers those days but every person he was around he had an influence upon. Mr. Keith may be gone but I know that he will never be forgotten. You are in my prayers daily and anything I can do please feel free to call on me. May God Bless each and everyone of you. David Bates Dr. Pepper 1966 and 1967

To Mildred & her Boys & their families: I just opened my email and learned of Jimmy's passing. Such sweet memories I have of growing up on Pecan Grove and feeling your home was my second home. Your dad was always such a sweet man to me - always with a smile. I know you will miss his physical presence and his touch. We all gain comfort in knowing he was a Christian man, and this is only a parting for a short while. I wish I could make it for this evening and for tomorrow but I will be in Houston for a family event. How I wish I could come and see you all together even though it is for such a sad occassion. Love your mama for me. All my love, Fran Carroll Rosenberger
