Aunt Theresa, Joanie and family, you have our love, support and prayers unconditionally. With fondest memories of your visits to New Orleans Pre-Katrina and Uncle Buster, Aunt Theresa, Keith, Joanie and the girls, learning your "roots & discovering family". Aunt Theresa, you were Vio, mom's dearest friend from St. Mary's days and the Sisters of the Holy Family and Auntie Girl Garcia were also your family. Uncle Buster shared and left a piece of himself with everyone he touched... a gracious giant we are so blessed to have known. Thanks for sharing. Love and miss y'all.
Debbie and Nettie Burns, Terez, Brad, Jourdan, Galen & Lauren family

Mrs Rector I was on facebook and thought I might catch up with Keith. That's when I saw the announcement about your husband. I am truly sorry for your loss. I didn't know Keith had passed also. Your son and the rest of your family were very nice to me that summer I attended Howard. Please let Joan, Michelle, and Hawk know I contacted you, and pass my message along. Your husband was a very special person, and I will always remember him and Keith. Sincerely, Val Bryant
