I have so many memories because Barbara and Carl have always been a very special part of my life. But if I had to choose a favorite, it would be all of the Saturdays we would hop in his truck and go to Lacon. I love and miss you Unk! Rest well until we meet again.

There is a lot of memories of Carl. One that I think about most is when he helped Melondy & I move. I dont know what we'd done without him & Tim. He stepped in & helped I'll never forget that kindness. Rest in peace.

Carl Kirby, Wow I can't believe you're gone. U have so so much love for you so many family and friends. My memory of you is when we worked together at the group home for boys n Madison. I didn't know to smile or cry starting out. Lol šŸ˜‚šŸ¤£ you always seemed so serious about everything. Then you reassured me that I would be just fine there. What a relief I felt. Lol. As long as I have ever known you, family was family. U have a great family and they have so much love for you I can only hope for such closeness and love. The smiles they carry today are not the same smiles they carried when you were with us. Their hearts are so broken beyond repair. I know one day they will have that glowing smile again,just may take awhile. You my friend will be missed forever. GOD GOT HIMSELF A GREAT MAN ON JUNE 5TH 2020. I HOPE YOU DANCE IN HEAVEN SEE THE BEAUTIFUL KINGDOM OF EVERLASTING LOVE AND WHILE YOUR THERE LOOK DOWN ON MY FRIENDS WANDA AND MRS. BARBARA . They're strong women but they need reassurance that you're okay. Send em a sign. R.I.P MY FRIEND
LOVE ALWAYS
LINDA

One of my favorite memories of Kirby was a trip we took to Atlanta.. to watch the braves play. On the way home he let us ride in the hatchback area and drove like we were on a roller coaster haha. It was probably dangerous but it sure was fun and had us laughing the whole way home. I miss being his neighbor.. and having to fill in from time to time on giving him his meds and shots .. never was there a dull moment with ole Kirby. He was loved and He will be truly missed.

To the family of Carl, I want to say I am so very sorry for your loss. Carl was a very special person. He was always so upbeat during our visits at Thanksgiving and Christmas and I enjoyed those visits so very much. Again, please accept my deepest condolences.
