Keisha, you gave such light and energy to everyone around you. I will miss you so much. You gave your best at every project we worked on together - always with a positive attitude. I was so impressed by all your interests.. from fishing to motor bikes... you are a true beauty inside and out. I will miss you so. God bless you, all those who love you and your family.

I only known you for a short time but the first time your mom introduced me to you the first thing I noticed was your smile because it lit up the room and you were so beautiful, smart, and professional you will be truly missed. My sincere condolences to the family my prayers are with you all. Love Beverly Bell (UL)

Keishia was one of the first people I met at UL. She was so kind and welcoming with her bright smile and her contagious laugh. She made more of an impact than she will ever know. She went out of her way to be kind to not only me but to my daughters and made it a point to ask about them every time she saw me. She was kind and generous with her time when we volunteered together at First Lego League and Feed 6. The world will definitely be a little less sparkly without Keishia.

Keisha, You were such a bright shining star, so vibrant and full of energy. You were always smiling and tried to make the best out of whatever situation you found yourself in. You have been taken away from all us way far too soon, and believe the UL family has lost one of its best! I'm so sorry I can’t be there so say good bye to you, and my heart goes out from England to your family, fiancée and friends who will be present and have to deal with your loss. Good by my friend, it was a great pleasure working with you these past years, rest in peace.

Kei kei your smile and beautiful face willl never be forgotten. And I know we will dance again! No one knows our pain, but I know your pain.. but I've lived it, and I will continue to live it. Because I know the pain and frustration.. and I'm speaking from the heart. And i feel the void that you felt in your heart . I can only hope that one day we will meet again.... family isn't everything that it should be! If it was we wouldn't be in this predicament today.. don't feel bad mama I have battle wounds as well. I will never forget you , and placing the blame on others will never bring you back. You are at peace now and I know that. Especially as I know how painful life is!

I've known Keishia for a good few years. She has always come across as an intelligent, passionate and dedicated person. More than anything, she was very caring - whether it is for another person or her work, or anything. Her vibrant personality, beautiful smile just lit up the room. I cannot believe Keishia, that you are no longer with us. Just does not seem right. May god bless your family and give them the courage through these times. It is a great loss for me and for all of us. Rest in peace, my dear.

I've had the great fortune of working with Keishia. She has such a positive energy and passion for life. She always had a smile on her face and was someone I truly admired both professionally and personally. I can only hope to make half the impact she has in her short 33 years. You will be greatly missed in the hallways of UL, may you rest in peace dear friend.

I am saddened beyond words at Keishia’s passing. She was a dear friend and colleague. Over the years working together I got to know her better, she always reflected her positive attitude, radiant smile, and charming personality. She would take the time to make people feel special, be it their birthday, anniversary or any other special moment in their lives. I am thankful to have known Keishia and will truly miss her. My heartfelt condolences to her family. Rest in peace dear Keishia.

When it comes to intimate friendship.....I was her only intimate best friend!!! We annoyed each other, but always came back to each other and had so many great times!!!!! I have so many great memories, what a beautiful friendship that we had!!! I annoyed her and she annoyed me....and we always got through it, just like any relationship!!! My heart is broken....and I will NEVER be the same!!! One thing I know, is that I will honor her wishes....which was “get back in shape Myr”.....and will do everything she did.....the charitable work as well as the “Hustle up the Hancock”....which she tried to get me to do several times!!!! I truly adored her....and she will forever be in my heart!!!! I plan to honor her the way she would’ve wanted me to!!! I will forever LOVE you Kei-Kei.....you’re “bright like a diamond”....and you will forever be my true BFF!!!!’ It’s truly devastating and difficult to let you go.......so although you departed this Earth.....I will NEVER forget you and I can’t wait to see you again!!! Rest in Heaven my beautiful PRINCESS!!!! I love you so much!!!!!

Keishia’s passing has left an unimaginable emptiness in my heart and void in the world. She kept me grounded on the important things in life. Outgoing, caring, cheerful, sparkling, inquisitive, dedicated, charismatic. Keishia maintained all the finest qualities a person could behold. I’m grateful and blessed to have shared in her life, and a better person because of her. Whatever projects we worked on through the years, you always knew it would be an exhilarating ride, with Keishia by your side. We laughed, extensively, through the ups and downs. And she was quick to find a ray of sunshine during difficult situations. She turned dreams into reality, no matter the endeavor. And, she effortlessly took the time to thank or congratulate others with any encounter. While traveling recently, I met a young lady with whom I saw glimpses of Keishia's sparkling personality. And, I shared that thought with her as we departed. She laughingly asked if that was a good thing. I informed her it was the highest compliment I could ever give another. An angel gone too soon from us, wrapped in God's loving arms. I dearly miss my friend and colleague, and hope to honor her memory by emulating her endearing spirit. May all find peace in this time of sorrow. And, may the outpouring of love surround and comfort you.

Beautiful, smart and caring you are (It is hard to believe as "were"). You left to be with God and in God's house, you are welcomed with open arms and an immense love. I was lucky to share happy times with you that will be in my mind forever. You will never be forgotten. Rest in peace.

I was privileged enough to spend 7 years of my life with this wonderful women. It breaks my heart that she is gone. I will always love her and always keep her in my memory. Keishia you were a blessing in my life.
Deborah Forrest left a message on June 22, 2018:
My dear Keishia?It has taken me a few days to get up the strength to honor your memory. When I saw your picture with that beautiful smile, just like your mom, I thought this is so surreal. I can’t believe you’re gone so soon, but GOD knows. I remember seeing you in the hall or cafeteria we would say hi, and give each other a hug. You encouraged me and I hope I encouraged you on those days. GOD has said come home my child. Your spirit is now free. May the “Peace of GOD” give your family strength during this trying time. Keishia lives on in each of you??.

I had the pleasure of working with Keishia since she started at UL. She was one of the nicest, sweetest, friendly people I know. She was a very hard and diligent worker, she was always willing to help and offer her assistance when needed. I am truly sad to hear this news, not only has a light at UL been burned out, but in the world. I am grateful I got the chance to know her. My condolences to your family. If any light can come from this darkness, know that she was a beautiful, honest, hard working, friendly, genuine person and made the most of her short time, and blessed others with her friendship along the way.

I had the pleasure of meeting Keishia in the UL fitness center and we were both part of the Whoo-Hoo girls group that participated in the 2016 climb for air at presidential towers in Chicago. I was in awe of her fitness level. Anytime she saw you in the hallway she had a big smile and a cheerful greeting. I will miss that smile! My sincere condolences to the family.

So, so sad. May God have mercy on her soul. May God almighty grant all those she left behind the fortitude to bear the loss, amen.

I had the pleasure of working with Keishia for 10+ years. I admired her success, can-do attitude, dedication to her health, and team spirit. I saw her stand up to bullies, naysayers and pretty much anyone else who tried to stand in her way ... she was unstoppable. And unstoppably positive. She inspired me with almost every interaction and I will be proud to try to integrate her legacy into excellence in everything I do. She is greatly missed.

I’m grateful to say that Keishia was a friend of mine. From the moment she joined my team, she brought tremendous energy and passion. I can say she taught me to take a moment to celebrate during a time when in my own life I wasn’t celebrating enough. She made birthdays, achievements, and small things special whenever she could for the people around her. She reminded me to be good with who I am and put myself out there. She always did. While she showed great physical strength when we ran the tough mudder, for those that knew her it was her internal strength that was most impressive. In the last couple of years, we didn’t have time to spend together much but I missed our long chat and big laughs. When I did see her, it was like no time had passed which is the sign of a true connection to someone. I am thankful for having the chance to know her. Her bright light has moved on to shine somewhere else. I will miss her greatly and remember her always. My prayers go out to her loved ones.

Keishia was a one-of-a-kind! She would sparkle throughout the day. We would always joke about helping the grumpy people in the office find their sparkle. It was our mission. She was an exercise queen. She gave advice for my daughter about working out and eating healthy. She definitely left an impact.
Emanuel Evans left a message on June 19, 2018:
Keishia was a pleasure to work with and to be around. She truly did have a mega-watt smile every single time I saw her and talked to her. A brilliant and business-minded young lady with a ton of knowledge. My heart is heavy and I will truly miss her. To her family, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
L Santiago left a message on June 19, 2018:
The first time I met Kei Kei her smile was contagious her positive attitude was one of a kind. I remember asking her "is your smile permanent?" She just smiled more. She was there whenever you needed her help. I used to see my sister and Kei Kei interact and I would be like OMG you two are really best friends completing each other sentences. When I BBQ she would tell me "Lisa I want chicken" I would say come on have a steak or burger she would laugh and say "some day I will". Memories are more often the link to the past and they are all we have that will last forever. I will forever have her in my heart. My deepest condolences to her family.
