As a Registered Nurse for 50 years I've lost many relatives, loved ones and friends and patients. When I glanced at Keith and Laura's photo I expected to read about some joyous event. After reading only the first line...I just sat and stared at the photo's. It can't be I thought...this is some kind of editorial error. My mind could not place the photos and text together. I shed many tears that day. If it was not for my Catholic upbringing and belief that Keith and Laura will be together again someday my sanity would not be intact. In the meantime Keith will always be near her to watch over her as a Guardian Angel. I Pray the Rosary nightly and will ask Mary Queen of Heaven to send comfort to Laura and all who loved this wonderful man. I often ponder as to why these things happen but I can't dwell on that for only God knows the Answer. God be with you all and especially Laura. The years will pass--Laura will find the Path for Her and she will carry Keith in her Heart Forever.......
