“The family would like to thank the community for their phenomenal support.”
– The Keyes Family


The Keyes family also asks that those who wish to do something in Emily’s honor engage in “Random Acts of Kindness” in her memory.


Through a family friend, Louis Gonzalez, the family said, “In memory of Emily, we would like everybody to go out and do random acts of kindness, random acts of love to your friends, to your neighbors, to your fellow students. That’s exactly what Emily would have wanted.”
