To a wonderful father in law- you will be greatly missed by all your family and friends. Thank you for all the memories that you have given me and my family. I've been thinking of you daily, and there are many pictures of your life that fill my thoughts. I especially remember you carrying new born Daley around the house, singing to her and then you both falling asleep on the couch while watching TV. I remember spending the best vacation of my life in Costa Rica with you and what a wonderful time we all had. I remember all the work you did around our house while you lived with us. I remember you eating cereal with fruit every morning. I remember going out with you on the boat on that beautiful sunny day. I could go on and on, there are so many thoughts that continue to surface every day. I will miss making new memories with you.

All my love to the O'Keefe family. Lisa

It doesn't take a scientist to realize that Papa O'Keefe was a great man and one of a kind. I had the fortunate opportunity of meeting him before this day came and it was an unforgettable experience. I have never met such a genuinely strong, loving, happy man. And its this memory I will forever keep in my mind.

My prayers and thoughts will always be with the great Papa O'Keefe and the the family.
