Jo - I remember when Kirk was born and you and Ralph were slightly overwhelmed with a baby and their demands. I visited with Kirk at our last NE class reunion. I know these last number of years have been difficult for you and he was fortunate to have the parents he did. Agnes & John Chambers

Kirk was a great guy. We were very close friends. During the time Kirk lived in California we spent a lot of time hanging out with Kirk (and Fazeela). In fact, Kirk was the Best Man at our wedding! We miss Kirk very much. He will forever be in our hearts and memories.

I was saddened to hear of Kirk's passing on to the next life. His smile was infectious. I love that you are having a munchie walk about to remember him by as he could eat more junk food than anyone I knew.

Farrar family,
So, so sorry to hear of Kirk's passing. I have many fond memories of Kirk from time spent with him in Seattle. He was very good with my kids and spent at least a couple of Thanksgivings with us. The kids requested black beans and rice and Twinkie cake for the holiday one year. Kirk made the cake and the also requested purple frosting which was enjoyed by all. Kirk will be missed by many. Remember the good things.
In sympathy,
Lynn Schultz
