    My heart breaks for the family. Kirk ALWAYS made me feel welcome at family get togethers. Not only would he bear hug me… but would ALWAYS kiss me on the cheek. He could light up a room with his smile and was truly a genuine nice guy!
    Thoughts and Prayers for the family. I will miss you Kirk!
