The news of Keith's death came as a complete shock to me. I think it was only Friday that we were all excited about his coming back, and then all of sudden, he's gone forever.
To be honest, I've never really lost anyone who was very close to me before, so this is very, very hard for me.
From his very first e-mail to me, Keith was someone who was a true friend.
In Becky's song, "By Your Side" it starts with the lyrics, "I still remember, my endless questions... I was so young, but still you'd listen. I'd feel so special, and every answer from your lips, would make me strong," and that's exactly how it was with Keith. I was constantly asking him for help and advice and he never turned me down.
He will never know how much his letters have meant to me... Its just so easy for me to get down and discouraged and just believing I can't sing and thinking I should just call it quits, and then there would be a letter from Keith, full of his usual encouragement and smiles.
I've always felt so proud to have Keith as my friend, and so amazed that will all the things he was doing, he always found time to support little old me and Crystal.
I've never felt I really deserved all his kindness, just in comparison to how amazing Hayley is for example, but Keith was one amazing guy.
You know, he actually agreed to being called my Uncle? I've never got to know any of my real Uncles, but Keith was a real Uncle to me.
My only regret is not being able to give me one of our 'hugs' in real life, but its good to know that Keith will never again suffer pain of any kind..
Keith is someone I'll never forget and who, although he's no longer with us, I'll always love...
