So sad to hear of Keith's passing. He was one of my friends growing up in our neighborhood in Cottonwood Heights. We were a tight knit little group and have so many memories. Bonus! He married one of my best friends there, Gloria. I was thrilled they had found each other. My heart goes out to sweet Gloria, their family and the Johns family. You're in my prayers.
