  1. It was so heart-warming to hear Keaton’s voice. I know he struggled as a young man in middle school, but he was always aware of his Asperger disability and worked very hard to overcome the challenges he faced. I can see and hear him now in the plays he did in middle school which was a very big deal, performing in front of a large crowd. He was a tremendous young man and I am glad he is doing well and is successful.
