Dear family of Pastor John Keller, I had the great joy and honor of meeting Pastor Keller and his wife Doris while serving as the Director of Pastoral Care at Luther Manor. I admired Pastor Keller for his humble servant attitude, faithful and inspiring ministry, his love of Doris and the rest of the family, and his kind words of support and encouragement. Doris and he would attend the worship services regularly at Luther Manor, and was always grateful for the Chapel services. He was a blessing to all he met, and many who yet today struggle with the illness of addiction through his caring ministry at Lutheran General. He always said the success of his ministry was Doris. I know Pastor Keller and Doris' love will last unto eternity as scripture teaches, and that God will reunite them through His grace and love. May God's peace in the assurance of our Lord's victory over sin and death bring comfort to all of Pastor John.s family and loved ones. I am certain Pastor John rejoiced at being in heaven for his first Christmas with his Lord, whose light and love he reflected with such beauty and splendor. We have lost another member of the "Greatest Generation", but his example and legacy will continue on. God's peace, Pastor Dave Patterson
