Kirby and I had many wonderful times together. We were as close as brothers. Our kids were all brought up together. I will miss him so much. He was a great man and friend to me. If I can help the family in any way, please let me know. With love and sympathy, Uncle Al Sparks.

Your Dad and my Uncle Kirby was the kindest, most caring and greatest person I ever knew. I wish we had gotten to spend more time together. We got to spend a little time with your dad after he moved to Kirby, but not as much as we
would have liked. PLEASE know how sorry we are for your loss. Now we only have one Uncle and one Aunt.
Love y'all,
Dan & Judy Kersey
