Keyshawn Purnell was one of the most soulful human beings I every found myself beside. I have said it a few times and I will say it again – very few times in life do you come across someone that is willing to give their all and not ask for even the tiniest of gratitude back. Keyshawn was one of those individuals indeed.
When I moved back to Seaford, I unloaded my storage unit, I also came across a sealed case of shirts that were designed in memory of Keyshawn during a Memorial 5k we held for him. This is one way I’d like to celebrate Valentine’s Day – anyone that can add to the amazing legacy of kindness Keyshawn left behind – I ask you to contribute to this blog post what you remember most about what Keyshawn gave you, and others as you remember it. His one legendary gift was to leap and stretch and run far beyond anyone’s expectations, and the same can be said of the way he gave those invisible gifts of kindness, without end. Share your most favorite gift, in honor of Keyshawn and Valentine’s Day, and each shirt will go out to you in return, I can think of no better way to have those shirts represent what we always knew about Keyshawn, now and forever.
