Add Your Own

Joy Kornegay Beaver

Dear Julia, Joan, Sherri, Kevin, Krystal and Brian: I am heart-broken for you all in the passing of Keith. Please know that each one of you is in my prayers and in my heart. Your family has been through so much in a short period of time. Your faith must be strong and the testimony of your family must be far-reaching and touching countless numbers of people. Your family is making a statement of your commitment to the Lord and how you all are continuing to praise Him and give Him the glory, even after all the sorrow and suffering that you've endured. What a powerful message you are sending to those whose faith has faltered, those who've yet to believe and those who are experiencing some of the same things in their own lives. I love each and every one of you so very much. Now, more than ever before, I cherish all the memories of our times together. I thank God, daily, for the parents we were given (Bobby, M.L., Julia, Carol), who raised us in the Word of God, in His house (church) and on bended knee, in prayer. I know how much you miss your dad, Blake and now Keith. But time is short on this earth. I look forward to that magnificent reunion in Heaven. To that time when the Lord will honor and reward each person for what he or she thought, said, did, believed and stood up for...God bless and keep you during this time. I love you all. Joy Kornegay
