Herb and Karen Kirk's home was always such a welcoming place. There was always good conversation, joy, and laughter and news about their children, grandchildren, and even the family pets. Herbert will be greatly missed by many. My heart goes out to all of the family.

Oh Karen, so many memories of you talking about Herbie. Mostly entertaining stories that left us all with a smile. It was so obvious you loved him, Joe College and Scott. I miss your stories, I miss you, my wonderful next door neighbor at Burnett. I am so sorry you lost him, and I will pray for all of you.
