Uncle Sonny was my Buddy! He made me laugh and we loved to "kid" and give each other a "hard time". I will miss him but can't wait to see him when I get to heaven. Aunt Ellen you are a sweetheart, we love you and you are in our prayers.

Our prayers and feelings of sorrow are with Sonny's wife and with all his family left behind. Sonny's work is now over. He rests and waits. Lord Bless you Ellen and family as we wait for that reunion that Jesus has promised. "Let not your hearts be troubled..." Now is the time to lean on our Lord and Savior. The sting of death has no power over Sonny - a man of God

Mr. Keene acted the part of an honorary church Grandfather to our children, giving them gifts, telling them jokes, being a part of their lives. Our family appreciates the love, work and dedication Mr. and Mrs. Keene gave as a part of our church family. Our hearts and prayers are with the Keene family in their loss. We look forward to the coming of our Lord, when our loved ones will rise and we can be together in the kingdom of Heaven!

I can't even fully express my loss over Sonny's death. Loved him like a dad....looked up to him as a truly spiritual man of God and as an earthly father. I know we have the blessed promise of being reunited with our loved ones who go on before us. Sonny is now resting in peace to be awakened by the trumpet call of God....to be re-created without any fault or defect of these earthly bodies. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
