Like the tides that are certain, we watched daily your slow meandering drives around Quoddy; we called them your Keith-about. Although your body has departed our sleepy neighborhood, soft echoes of your peaceful presence remain in our hearts. Bless you Keith Selwood, until we meet again.

Oh, how he danced, like no other! He could jitterbug/Lindy with the klutziest of partners (me), making them look so smooth and accomplished. Who else but Keith would take his friends Sunday driving in his black car on the railroad tracks??!! Always with that most infectious smile. Keith, you leave a ragged hole in our world...........
