I remember the first time I met Kyle, at the company he had worked for since the age of 19. He spent a long time with me, sharing stories of his early years & how he was raised by a single mother. He was one of the most refreshingly honest people I ever met. And he had a passion for his company & for helping others succeed. Kyle was a remarkable young man who left a lasting impression on everyone that knew him. And he made a positive difference in the lives of many. May you rest in peace Kyle. You are surely missed.
