    I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your Father. I lost my Mother in August of this year. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    We were so sorry to hear about Mr. Keeler’s passing. We hold so many fond memories of him as our neighbor and friend. Mr. and Mrs. Keeler were like second parents/grandparents to us, while living in Nashville.

    Please know that your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

    We would like to offer our condolences to the Keeler family. Several years ago while traveling to the USS Alhena reunion in Niagara Falls we stopped for a visit with Charles and Mildred. It was a lovely visit. Charles and Ed enjoyed reminiscing about their Navy days. With fond memories, former shipmate Ed and Mary Heuer

    I and his former USS Alhena AKA-9 shipmates will honor him and his memory during our 2007 reunion in Branson,MO. He served his country with HONOR. We will miss Charles. May he rest in peace.
