On Monday Tulane lost one of it's most loyal Fans. His name will never appear on any building, stadium, field or court. He was the type of fan that Tulane is desperate for, the kind who proudly flew his Tulane flag in front of his Gonzales, LA home. The type of Fan who purchased tickets and attended games, the type of fan who appreciated the young men and women who went between the lines so we could be enteratined for a few hours. The type of Fan who appreciated outstanding plays being made, even if it were by the opposing team, becasue he understood the time and dedication it took in order to make those plays. this past Spring he met with Tulane officials and presented them with several boxes of memorabilia and Stadium seats that will be displayed at the Wilson center in the near future, his name will not appear there either. He battled cancer for 5 years, first losing a kidney, then part of his stomach and intestine and finally just a few weeks ago part of his spine, he was a fighter, the type of fighter i wish I was. He was an excellent person, he helped many and never sought recoginigtion, becasue it was the right thing to do. He was never on any Deans List, but there is not a doubt in my mind he was one of the most intelligent people to graduated from Tulane University. I miss my little brother so much, and I never told him I loved near enough times . This Sunday, Keith will be laid to rest, he has joined my Dad and my other younger brother Chris, also a Tulane Grad in Heaven. I only hope and pray that one day I will also be able to join them. Please, go tell someone you love them, it is the best give you can give
