I've always had a special place in my heart for Uncle Kirby. I was painfully shy as a kid and somehow he would always get me talking when no one else could. He seemed to do whatever it took to draw me out of my shell and make me laugh and open up. I don't know how he did it but I'll always appreciate him making me feel included. He and Aunt Paula always made us feel very welcome in their home and even though it's been many years since I've seen them, I love them very much.

am so sorry for your loss! Please give Paula a hug from me. I will always remember his warmth and hugs when visiting with he and Paula. I have missed seeing them these past few years-they were always some of my favorite people. He is in a much better place now. Love to you all-Susan Bynum Sherwin

Kirby was one of my late husbands best friends since they met at St. Gerard in elementary school. Kirby and Paula were Godparents to our son. The world has lost a good man!! My heart goes out to his family. RIP dear friend.
