Keith was one of the finest people that I knew at Charter. He displayed a grace and niceness that isn’t common in the corporate world, and he will be missed by all that he crossed paths with. I am sorry for your loss. I pray that you find comfort in the arms of the Lord. We have hope in the time of grief and the hope of the resurrection.
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted” (Matthew 5:4).
Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:17-18).

Prayers of comforter to the family. Your angel Keith Burton was a very nice man. Not one time did he come to work looking troubled or anger about anything. Always gave you a hello and a smile when he approached you. He was very happy to retire and move on to the next chapter in his life. I know hearts are heavy. May God provide you with the joy in knowing that Keith lived that life that he believed in. May God continue to be with you all.
