Debbie Moses Day - the precious Mom of our sweet friend Keith joins us on this tribute show to talk about all things Keith, his life and his legacy. When a mother loses a child her biggest fear is for this child to be forgotten. We wanted to make sure that Keith will never be forgotten and wanted to dedicate an entire show to him, with all of our favorite memories. Even though Keith was an adult, he was Debbie's only child and the loss has been devastating to her. Keith was only 35 years old. Debbie wants this podcast to be a 2 fold thing - Honoring Keith's memory but also giving tips and spreading awareness to other parents of adult children that may be struggling. We learn all about Keith the young child, and early school years and how he got the name Scooter. Keith was never shy and made lots of friends always. He was a daredevil from the young age of 5. He never felt any fear. He was into BMX and won lots of trophies. Debbie shares lots of fun and cute stories and how he became a ladies man. She tells of some teenage shenanigans. Keith always treated her special and loving, but especially on Mother's Day he always spoiled and surprised her. After High School Keith went to the Marines, but broke his foot towards the very end of boot camp and that is when things started to change for him and he started getting into drugs at age 19. At age 21 he got into more trouble and was arrested - that is when Debbie pieced together that he was more in trouble that she thought. She says it was hard, because he was now an adult and she no longer had any control. He started hanging out with the wrong crowd which made things worse. She buried her head in the sand because she didn't want to know. We talk about Keith's love for bowling and how competitive he was. Keith was always entrepreneurial minded and was into many things but then decided to concentrate only on his real estate, but Debbie thinks he got lonely when he moved backto downtown Dallas, when things really started going bad again.In November of 2016, Chris Allen, one of Keith's best friends suddenly passed away from an accidental drug overdose, followed by Davin Watson in April of 2017. Twins that Keith went to school withcommitted suicide. Those losses really overwhelmed Keith, but he kept his feelings to himself and wouldn't ask anyone for help. He started pushing everyone away. Keith didn't want to let anyone down and didn't want anyone to see him when he would get off track. When you look at Keith that is not the face you would think was in trouble. Marcella talks about one of the last Sunday Fundays she had with Keith where she saw him take prescription pills and told him that she worried about his heart. He assured her he was fine. Debbie wants to tell everyone that parents need to have open conversations with their grown children, even if they reject them. If anyone feels that their grown child is pulling away, not calling as often, not visiting as much, those are red flags and you need to deal with them and not bury your head in the sand. There is a fine line between parents and their grown children but you should never stop trying to help them. Debbie recalls texting with Keith to make birthday plans with him 2 days before he was found dead. He requested Pina Colada cake (his favorite) and told her he loved her. Then Debbie tells us about the moment she received the detectives call, that told her that Keith overdosed and what happened next. She was in severe shock and cannot remember many things from that moment on. She is very thankful to all the family and people that helped during that time and still today. She just wishes everyone would bring up Keith's name all the time. Debbie then addresses the fact that Keith's casket was open at his funeral against her wishes but why she agreed to do it. She doesn't remember anybody at the funeral except when Davin's Mom hugged herand handed her a card with her phone number. Debbie knew she knew her pain. She is so happy that she has heard from so many people that loved Keith. She loved reading all the messages from all the people.Debbie knows that Keith is in heaven, she found a bible she gave him a long time ago on his nightstand. Debbie knows he is with God and that God is taking care of him. She had a dream of Keith coming back and telling her that he is sorry for hurting her. We talk about more favorite, fun memories with Keith. Memories that we have forever. Memories of suicide shots, easter eggs eaten with the shell on, Keith wearing a girls mermaid tail, late night races, Sunday Fundays, breakfasts at Denny's, sleepovers on our couch and bagel breakfasts, his kindness when helping homeless people and his sense of style and of course his foot
