To the Keeton family: so many memories, so many good times. We all enjoyed Jerry’s love of the outdoors and the kids looked forward to fishing and camping, snowball fights and the many stories. I am especially thankful for the black eyed peas recipe and think of Jerry when I cook these. I have always enjoyed his art work and of course the guitar and singing. What a gift to have known Jerry. Keeton family, thanks for sharing him with us.

Saddened to hear of Jerry's loss. He was always one of my favorite people. I was shocked to read that he graduated from high school the year I was born. All I can say is that he wore his age well. I always remember the day Dave & I were laying rock at Dorothy Faye's house when Jerry came strolling onto the patio with a tiny Jeri Ann in his arms & a grin from ear-to-ear. He was taking her all over town to introduce her to everyone he knew. He'll be missed by many. You're in my thoughts.

To the Keeton family, I would like to to give my most heartfelt condolences from myself and the Richardson family. My dad Albert M. Richardson thought the world of a Jerry. I can’t count the number of times Daddy said “we need to go see Jerry”. We would take off to Homestead Acres! May you all savor the memories of this wonderful man. May he rest peacefully in God’s loving arms. Barbara Richardson
