Hey dad, just thought i would drop by and say i love you. I miss you everyday and i still cant take that your gone. I remember if i was ever having girl problems you would always help me out but now that i am having serious girl problems i cant talk to you about it. I need you more than ever dad. I miss you so much. I wish every morning was the same waking up with you taking care of me.

Another christmas without you but I guess I will have to get used to it because nothing I could do would bring you back to us.I wish I could go back and change things .but I can't do that either. One day I pray I'll see your beautiful face again.I love you much and miss you just as much. Mom until then

I know this is a very hard time of the year for the family. My prayer is that everyone who is missing you find comfort in the LORD. Your memory will live on in their hearts. Tears are shed as they remember your life with them and keep you close in heart. You were such a fine young man, I will always remember you. Love to the Family

Keith had a unique abiiity to make you feel happy, wanted and at ease. He looked out for his friends and as he told me shortly before he passed away "team mates forever". Keith you will always be my team mate and I will always remember you as the fantastic man you were. I'm sure your boys know this, but your daddy was one of the greatest men I ever met

I loved my brother so much. I will never forget the fun times we had together. He was a loving person and me, Pam, and my mom would have done anything for him. I miss him so much everyday that i still can't believe he is gone. I love you Keith and always will.
Posted by Chastity Landers on September 18, 2010
I think of Keith when I run because I would see him standing outside his house every time I passed by. I think of Keith every time I go to the grocery store because it always seemed like we were there at the same time. I'll think of Keith every time I go to watch a football, basketball, or baseball game. I think of Keith every day and miss him so much!
Posted by James Johnson on September 17, 2010

He was a very loving and caring man. son, i will forever miss you. your sister always Pam and I will always be here for your boys.
Posted by Johnnie Mae Dillard on September 14, 2010
What a horrible loss, he was so young. I didn't know him, but I certainly have sympathy for you and his family. I lost my husband, Rufus Dillard the 19th of June, just 3 months past his 83rd birthday.Like Jeannie said memories will always live. Death is just a temporary separation. May God bless.

Keith was a great guy! He loved his boys and family more than anything. Iwill always remember the fun we had playing cards on Saturday nights, one of his favorite things to do. He looked forward to playing as much as anyone else! He will be forever in my heart. I miss him dearly.He was always such a good friend.He will be forever missed by the ones who knew and loved him!
Posted by Mary Lou Porter on September 12, 2010
I will forever miss you. The times I spent in your presence will always be with me. I know you are greatly missed by everyone who knew you. I will continue to pray for your family and always keep you in remembrance in my heart. your family mean a lot to me.

Happy Birthday Keith, I know you are wearing wings in heaven today and its wonderful there. Your Mom will be having a hard time today missing you on your birthday.

Shared by Ann Stamps-Mink on January 31, 2014

Hi  Keith,I thought I would stop by and check out your stories and friends.Your smile is so beautiful . You remind me of my youngest son a lot.Some people say that me and your Mom favor.I guess we look like the Stamps.I often wonder if you and my Tammy might meet in heaven.Someday Wilma and I will be with you and Tammy and we will all as the song says be dancing in heaven.

Shared by Ann Stamps-Mink on December 25, 2011

Hi Kieth, I wasnt fortunate enough to ever meet you but I am your cousin.I grew up with your Mom.We were in the same grade and usually in the same class.Your Mom was a quite,good,humble person and I was always the loud mouth who stayed in the office a lot for talking or giggling in class.I have a daughter who passed away and she is in heaven too.I wish you would look her up.She was a lot like me, so look for the angel who is laughing the most.Her name is Tammy Shields.Your Mom misses you so much and today is a really a hard day for her.Christmas is always hard because we miss you even worse on that day.You were really a good looking young man and have great children.I was lucky enough to meet them.I even had my picture made with one of them.He is a funny one and makes everyone around him smile.Wilma is really a good Grandmother and those boys are her life  now.That is all that keeps her going I am sure.I know that because when you lose a child you feel like you at least have a piece of them in their children.You were too young to have to go but God seems to take the best ones first.He needed you and Tammy for something.
