Attorney Gerard Zeller knew attorney David Keeffe for more than 30 years.

He went to school with David's wife Carol.

Zeller spoke during a ceremony to remember the Keeffes, saying a good lawyer and friend will be missed.

"It's going to be difficult for me and it's going to be difficult for many many people to get along without him," says Zeller.

Zeller was one of many attorneys and judges who paid tribute to David at the ceremony in Bradford County Court in Towanda.

As head of the Bradford County Bar Association, David made a lot of friends and had a lasting impression.

"David Keeffe represented everything good, decent and noble about our profession," says Judge John Mott of Bradford County.

"He was a tremendous person, a caring giving and committed person and that's the greatness I think we need to remember above all," says Judge Jeffrey Smith of Bradford County.

Friday was a time to remember the Keeffes and honor their two children.

But there was little mention of the crime that took the lives of David and Carol.

"We extend our deepest sympathy to the family and hope whoever did this horrible crime is apprehended," says Jonathan Foster of Bradford County Bar Association.

The Keeffes were found dead in their Athens Township home on November 17th, murdered with a shotgun.

Police are releasing few details about the crime, saying it's an ongoing investigation.

No arrests have been made and friends like Zeller are stunned because they say the Keeffes had no enemies.

A 100-thousand dollar reward is offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
