on April 10th. He was the most amazing, generous, easy going spirit I have

something happening in the future..we will see..would you like to see a new
BS: Is there anything else you would like to add?
Keith: I can't explain the bond and circle we made with this band..as I look
back we were and are still a family. Thank you guys for the support..much
