    Chuck Rice and our little family lived In.Cleveland, MO from 1990-1995. We always saw Keith walking in town extending a Hello and updating us of the town news. Even after we moved to Louisburg, KS,, all the way to today In Independence, I had reconnected with Keith. It’s so sad to lose you at a young age. Rest In Heavenly Peace Keith.
