Condolence From: Lynn Walker
Condolence: Keith was probably the most likeable guy at Science Hill High School, we graduated together in 1974. He was always friendly to everyone, always smiling everybody liked him. The Ponder boys and I and the neighborhood guys played a lot of Sandlot basketball and football at Civitan Park and Rotary Park in the early - mid 70s. those were great times with very fond memories and all of the Ponders were super kids. I really didn't know Kieth after high school, but it was evident back then that he would grow to be a very quality person, man, husband, father, great guy. The best thing you can say about a man, and it's what they said about my dad, Joe Walker ...he had no enemies. I feel the same about Keith and I'm sure that he was liked by all.

Condolence: To the Ponder Family,
I worked with Keith in the early '90's at Snyder Paper Corporation. He always had a smile and was always so nice to me. He was actually my boss, but, we became friends and I always appreciated his kindness and giving me an opportunity to work there when I had no experience. I will always remember the kindness and patience that he that he had with me. I am so sorry for your loss because Keith was one heck of a nice, great guy.

Condolence: Our prayers and condolences are with the Ponder Family at this time. Keith was always so full of life, funny, always had a joke to tell. We will miss his laugh, his curly dark hair, and his contagious smile. He will be sorely missed by those who knew him.

Condolence From: The Weavers
Condolence: We are so very sorry for your loss! Feelings of despair can be overwhelming at this time. We pray that “the Father of tender mercies, and the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4) will give you peace of mind and comfort in your hearts. Acts 24:15 says that “there is going to be a resurrection” and Job 14:14, 15 shows that God has a longing to resurrect his friends! We are so grateful that our loving God looks forward, as much as we do, to reuniting us with our loved ones.
