Funeral Service

The Funeral Service was held at a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints building in Seattle on November 21st, 2009. Many family and friends were in attendance.

Keith’s casket was in the ‘family gathering’ room at the church before the funeral services began. Many shared their tearful words of love and fond memories. His casket was in his favorite color—blue.

The service in the chapel was lovely. There was music and stories told of Keith’s life by some of his family members.

Afterward, Keith received a military salute by the Army National Guard at his final resting place. A bugle was played. It was the most beautiful thing most had ever heard. The flag from Keith’s casket was folded and presented to Keith’s daughter, Melissa. It was an emotional and unforgettable experience. A few people placed flowers lovingly on his casket to say their goodbyes, including his two grandchildren.
