Dearest Daddy,

I am broken hearted by your loss - but I know that you are in a better place and that I will see you again someday.
You have always taught me so much throughout my life. Lessons that I will never forget. You taught me to be a better person! To care for my family, to care for the earth, to respect others, and to raise my children right. I want you and everyone to know that you were the best father I could ever ask for! You were strict but you were also a teddy-bear. You enjoyed family. For you - I will always be grateful. I will wake up each day and think of you for the rest of my life, and I will honor you. I love you daddy! Until we meet again......

We have lost another wonderful man. I will forever hold onto the memories of dancing with him, all the fun in the pool, the great food, and even his fatherly speeches to me always steering me in the right direction and teaching me things about life I’ll never forget.  Heaven has gained another angel and Uncle Kirby will be forever missed.  Please tell my Papaw Bill how much we love and miss him. God has gained two amazing men who I am proud to call family.

The fruit of who you are is shown by the ones you leave behind - Kirby was loved deeply by all of us and his genuine love for everyone around him was clear.  Prayers for all of you as we grieve in different ways.

My family, you are in my thoughts and prayers, y'all have taken a hard hit, but I know that we will all see him again because he was one of Gods children. We will see all of our family again. Romans 14:8 - For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.  1 Thessalonians 4:14 - For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.  May you find comfort in knowing that this is just for a while until we are all united again~

I lived two house from Kirby and he was a very happy man with a big smile. I always could count on his family to let be bother cooking oil or somethings of that nature and gladly he was ready to share. I also remember always sharing his preserves jats with my Family. When I sat on my patio Saturday mornings, I could hear the sound of music coming from Kirby's house it was all good he played some of my songs. A good neighbor and friend, may you rest in peace and may God comfort your family during this difficult tine.
