I knew both Keith and Nina. My condolences on your loss.
I am so saddened and sorry for your loss to all!
Mr. Wellman was a great man who I was able to get to know living in the same circle as my grandmother Orlean Boughton as well as myself later in year’s to take care of her @ a 101yrs old.
I had the pleasure to also work with Keith as a caregiver and walked around the circle with him or sit outside as he enjoyed as well.
I enjoyed his company as well as playing his favorite games such as cards or going on the color tour or dinner he loved to do
Thoughts and prayers for you and your families
Keith will be deeply missed

I lived in the same neighborhood as Mr. Wellman and I would see him walking around the circle or out in his yard when I was walking. He would always stop to talk and he was very pleasant and never complained or said anything bad about anyone. His yard always looked very nice and well maintained. I miss seeing him and chatting with him on my almost daily walks. Rest In Peace Mr. Wellman.
I love you so much, Keith! It was an honor to care for you ❤️❤️❤️
IdaMae Wellman Franks and Family want Keith’s family members to know how sad we are. Keith and Nina where a good match and are now back together. God Bless them both.
