Juanita Arceneaux, February 24, 2017 Stehanie and family, So sorry to hear of keith's passing. I've known keith for many years. I thought highly of him and always considered him a friend. My thoughts and Prayers are with you all. Michael Babus, February 24, 2017 Stephanie and family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Keith was an awesome person who loved and touched the life of many. As Paul said in 2 Tim. 4:7 "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing." We know that Keith is now in heaven, but the loss here is so hard. We must take God's word and stand on it. Psalms 147:3 "He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds" Jesus tells us, in John 16:22 "And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you." Know this many people are praying for you and your family. Keith has gone to be with Jesus, but he will live on through his wonderful children and all the memories that you shared. God be with you and yours., Love Dan and Carrie Stevens. Dan Stevens, February 24, 2017 Our hearts go out to Stephanie, their children and family. Keith was wonderfully kind, considerate and decent and our thoughts and prayers are with you, may God look over you. Lew and Lisa Barringer, Ray, Mar and John Robinson, February 23, 2017 I am sorry I am out of town till Saturday. May God comfort you family. Dallas Misenhimer, February 23, 2017 To the Bailey Family Since I moved here a few years ago, I have been privileged to get to know the Bailey Family. I was so impressed with the love and heart-felt greeting whenever I had the need for repair service. I never felt taken advantage of or that I was bothering the Bailey's with my multitude of novice questions about my cars. Keith always took the time to stop other jobs and answer any questions I had or the "what if" questions I poised. We never know what our life plans are, but I know Keith is one of the chosen ones sent here to bless the lives of his family, his friends, and those he met daily. He will be missed in so many ways and by so many. May God's prayers and comfort be with the Bailey family . Dallas Misenhimer, February 23, 2017 Our hearts are just broken ... such a shock. We pray that Stephanie and the kids will be comforted by the grace of our all good and gracious God during this incredibly hard season. We trusted Keith ... went to the shop every time we needed inspections or work. Always got good results, honest and candid information, and terrific treatment from both Keith and Stephanie. Keith graduated from Princeton HS just one year before our daughter Rachel ..... we all miss him and grieve for the family. Blessings and prayers. / The Kallenbergs Tom and Janet Kallenberg, February 23, 2017 Sorry for your loss. God bless

Rhonda, February 22, 2017 I have known Kieth and Stephanie for several years and he was not only a great mechanic, but also a good friend.
