I'm still receiving tributes for Kesey from both old and new friends. I've recently added some more stuff to these pages (now up to 13), and will post everything that you send me. Visit the memorial page to read what people have sent us about Kesey's memorial service or the tribute pages 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 to read some great stories and some heartfelt send-offs.
