    God bless John Keller who taught me to drive. Just this week I had to take my first driver’s test in almost 30-years after the suspension I received for my seizure induced accident. It made me reflect on how important driving is in our lives and made me think about Mr. Keller. I remember being in the car with another student in the backseat and Mr. Keller in the passenger seat. I was driving down a narrow Great Bend street with cars on either side when the other student screamed “Oh my gosh…you almost hit that car!” I didn’t notice, but Mr. Keller replied to the other student; “Calm down, he had plenty of room… least two inches.” Thanks for having my back Mr. Keller. May you rest in peace.
