Kirby was always someone I had a special connection with. We seemed to understand each other. He had a pure love and respect for natural and primitive things, and a love of the outdoors, and Indian lore. I admired him greatly, and will never forget him!

I will always remember the time I stepped on a bumble bee in your front yard. It hurt so bad but you scooped me up and put some natural stuff on it and made it better. You taught us to make awesome things all the time. Wood carvings were always so much fun to make with you. You always made us laugh and smile when you were around. You will always be cherished in my heart. Thank you for all the fun times. We love you uncle Kirby!
