Memories of Keith
Carla, K5RLA, managed Director Woolweaver’s ARRL booth at Ham-Com for several years before our retirement. I just hung around as the gopher. Keith’s AMSAT booth was often either next to us or across the aisle at Plano. She and I developed a great friendship with Keith during those days. We covered for each other at our tables when needed, we joked with each other...and we all know Keith’s sense of humor. Carla reminded me today of an example from those days. She had folks lined up at her table, selling memberships, handing out free promotional books with membership sales and Keith...well, he was all by his lonesome next door…. and then out of the blue she heard ”Come on over! I’ve got FREE STUFF too” then there was a pause and “Pretty girls get all the attention!”
Not ashamed to to say that we both shed a tear yesterday for our friend. Our friend and his smile!
