Subject: RE: Obit: Keith A of Hertford Nov. 2018
I am saddened to read the news that Keith has died. I only learned recently of his illness when I looked in on the cat after many years of absence, maybe I was meant to look in.

We had many a debate on the cat regarding Irish related issues and as many are aware, we held very different views.

I am a committed Irish Republican and ex Republican prisoner who served 16 years in both the cages of Long Kesh (3 years during internment) and 13 years of a life sentence) in the H Blocks.

No one could keep his cool like Keith could and ignore and sidestep the facts and statistics I posted, God he knew how to get to me.

Publicly we were like cat and dog, but through private messaging we were very different and the complete opposite and rarely even discussed politics.

Keith, I will miss you even though it has been some time since we were in touch. To his family, he is a man I respected and remember, no one gets to take away your memories.
