    Still in shock pal and miss you everyday. I want you to know I have so many memories of our family spending time together birthdays, barbecue’s, and holidays. I will miss your smile, the way we use to work out in the gym me, you, your Dad, and last but not least really tan pappy. We use to have so much fun together. I removed taking you to spring lake to feed the ducks when you were like 3 years your curly hair so inquisitive and innocent. I am rambling but what do you expect I have so many emotions and amazing memories of us spending time together and I will them all.

    I found this bible verse and wanted to share it with everybody on this thread.

    Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

    Anthony please give grandma, grandpa, and your Dad a hug I want you all to know I miss you all very much and love you with all my heart. Rest in piece until we all meet again love you pal I am still very proud of you and love you very much always have.

    Your grieving uncle James Joseph keenan

    Anthony I’ve been thinking of you and your dad a lot lately. It’s hard to imagine you’re both gone already but I know you both aren’t suffering anymore. I will see you both again in a much better place. Love and miss you both.

    I remember the first time I met you. Your Dad brought you to work on a Saturday. You must have been 12 years old. You had a huge smile that lit up the room😀 I remember also telling your Dad that you were going to need braces like something serious🤣 I got to see you continuously grow up over the years as I forged a kinship with the Keenan Clan. You become a fine young man! I also had the opportunity to work with you as an apprentice in the trades. I can say with all honesty you were always smiling and that is what I will miss the most🥲 It was an infectious smile. May you Rest In Peace🙏🏻 And god bless your soul. It is by dying that one awakens to eternal life. Good bye brother💫

    Anthony, boy where do I start I would get random messages from you just saying hello checking on me to see how my sister Bobbie and I were doing. A family we once all were.. you are dearly missed he had so many people who wanted nothing but the best for you. I know what it’s like to lose a father and the struggle and the hurt and the pain he must’ve felt there’s nothing that can change that there’s nothing that can make that go away and I’m so so sorry I didn’t get to tell you that I’m so sorry I didn’t get to check on you when your father died and I’m so sorry I didn’t randomly write you a message just to see how you were doing. Thank you for being you and thank you for touching so many lives that you did everything that James Keenan said about you I agree with 110% life here on earth will never be the same for so many people I hope that you were at peace and I know your Dad was right there waiting to hug you and let you know it’s ok and he loves you. To Anthony‘s family to Anthony‘s friends I’m so sorry for your loss nothing I can say will make that go away and I’m not gonna tell you Time heals all wounds because that’s not true we just learn to make room for them life goes on and sometimes it’s horrible or sometimes we can make it the best we can by keep everyone’s memory alive that we’ve lost. -Erica

    Anthony,
    I will miss you. I wish we could have had more time to catch up with each other. I think about when we were kids when I would come to your dad’s house in Santa Rosa. We had a lot of good times. Cousin, you’re in a better place now and I will see you again. I love you always and it deeply hurts me knowing that you are gone. You will always be in my heart and prayers.
    R.I.P. your cousin, Vincent

    Anthony – I cannot be at your service today. But what’s harder is that you’re gone and not here to share in all of the great things life still had for you. We go pretty far back. Some good times and not so good times. Hearing about your dad was tough because there was so much left unsaid and not closed. But I guess that’s the way it goes sometimes. I want you to know that you were a great kid and you grew up into a fine man. You had a heart of gold and were pretty hilarious at times. I have great memories of spending time with you when you were a kid. I remember a birthday cake you made with your dad for me. I wasn’t sure it was edible but we ate it anyway! It turned out to be great. I remember going to water parks with you. We would always compete for who was ready for the biggest one first. It was usually you lol. I will always remember what a great brother you were to your sisters. And how loving you were with Katelyn. I remember how she’d sit on your bed and just stare at you while you were doing goofy things. You had a protective nature and a maturity that made you a cool kid to hang out with. I love you and I’m so glad that as life is taken as different directions, you and your mom and your sisters have remained a part of my life. We will hang out again someday and until then, rest peacefully and spend all the time you can with your dad up there ❤️
