This is a picture of our son (driver) and his best friend (standing in back), in one of our Trans-Ams. I loved our cars. My daughter and I had never seen this picture, until last night. My son has been dead for years and years and…years.
His best friend just ended up in the hospital and his wife texted my daughter and me right away. He grew up hanging around our house. She sent this picture last night. She said he has always had it on the fridge, for all these MANY, MANY, years and he tells their two girls stories about what the two of them did (OMG you don’t ever want to know what they REALLY did), and he still misses him so much. I am telling you the truth…that the police PARKED in front of our house, so they wouldn’t have to drive over here all the time. You can’t imagine what it was like with him. LOL
Anyway, I love this picture. My grandson looks just like him. Deb sent the picture to him, since he was only 5 when our son/his father died.
I told his friend’s wife to take the picture to the hospital and put it on top of him (he’s in a medically induced coma after he received a shot at the hospital that almost killed him). I said if ANYONE could wake him up and get him back on his feet it would be Keith. She said that was a great idea and she would do it.
They really were like brothers. I don’t know how anyone put up with Keith but everyone loved him. Well, he was fearless and crazy, so they lived vicariously through him. I spent a lot of time at the hospital getting him patched up, after being fearless and crazy, however.
He was literally a perfect child, until I brought his sister home. He asked my mom how long the baby was staying and she told him forever. I don’t think he ever forgave me. I don’t forgives me even now, after all these years.
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this picture of both of them. She said she would make a copy for me. My daughter still has a hard time looking at pictures of him, as well as of her father. So she won’t want one.
Now we have to get his best friend back to normal, so he can tell his kids more of the nicer stories about what they did.. We love him and can’t wait until he’s awake and we get god news. ❤
