We have wonderful memories of Uncle Keith and aunt Arlene. Sure will miss both of them. They always were there when we were kids after Dad died sharing many meals and conversations. We will be thinking of all of you and would be at the funeral if we were home in Minnesota. We had a great visit with your dad last fall and he got to meet Ben's wife Steph and we will cherish the moments. Love Chuck and Sissel
