This year, it was my son’s turn to be a part of the trip to Jefferson City. Although I couldn’t get off work to go with him, my wife was able to go. Before they left, I gave my wife a special mission. Her mission, which she chose to accept, was to find one of the photos of Pop in the capital and take my son’s picture with it. You see great-grandfather “Pop” Keating served in the Missouri House of Representatives from 1930-1938 and again in 1942. He then served in the Missouri State Senate from 1944-1968.
