I met Kirk in high school. He was a grade above me but he became my best friend for a year and a half until he graduated. Always kind, always loyal. The time we locked ourselves out of his blue Chevette after the movies and had to get a coat hangar to get in...the best.

So sorry for your loss. After hearing the news memories of Kirk, Chris and the Woodman family in old neighbourhood came back. Lots of good times on Catalina Lane in Greenwood. I will remember Kirk from those days and always smile.
