God bless the Sayre family. Looking forward to a 100 W reunion in the sky one day. Keith must have been 32 last time I saw him. How time flies and children grow up, and too many pass on too quickly, but still we trust in God and serve Him as best we can.

No matter where we were in the world, Keith always managed to find us and make sure we knew he was thinking about us. While NMart was deployed to Afghanistan he made sure that he knew he was always there for him. We will miss him terribly. What a loyal and funny friend to have. Our memories will carry us through until we see him again. We love you! Mart and Melissa

We were so saddened to hear the news of Keith's illness and passing. He was such a nice man. We had the pleasure of getting to know him as we made a 3 year long decision to buy a Conquest boat. He was always so full of life and excitement in everything he did. He was patient and helpful as we made up our minds. He enjoyed life and adventure. He will be missed by many people in Havasu. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his beautiful family.

I just read about Keith and realized that his funeral was today! I'm so sorry that I missed it. The Sayre's were very close friends of our family and I watched Keith grow up in PG. He was always so friendly and full of life. His dear mother Louise is buried right next to my husband Brent and I was just there early this morning and said "hi" to her. Today was the 20 year anniversary of Brent's death. My heartfelt prayers go out to all of you. God Bless! Jolene Bowman
