Lamb family - I was sorry to see Kirt's obituary. So many memories. I loved the Lamb family reunions, most of all the dances at the open air floor by the old school. Watching Jeanie, and Colleen, Kirt, Lee, Douglas, dance the jitter bug. Uncle Doug and his band were wonderful. Thanks to all of you for the memories.

Joann and family,
We were saddened to hear of Kirt's deathand that we learned it too late to attend the funeral. He was one of Mike's favorite people in Magna and we treasure our friendship with Him and Joann. Our love and prayers are for your peace and the comfort of the Lord's love to be with you.

Dear JoAnn and Family,

We are so sorry to see that KIRT has passed on. He was such a good person and we will both always remember him. Most of our memories are pretty old since we go back about 55 years to when you guys lived in the basement apartment in old Magna. Our parents were friends of yours, and I really hope you remember me cuz I was named after you. I spent many hours in that basement apartment baking cookies with you as well as "helping" you get dinner ready before Kirt came home from work. I still feel like I should be calling him Mr. Lamb. I am forever thankful for your friendship with my Mom (Nedra Raisor). I know how much she loved you and liked you and how much she laughed with you. Thanks for that! God bless you and your family.

From JoAnn Raisor Lang and the little boy called Robert BEETLE Lang who has been my husband for the past 18 years.

What a great man and example. Kirt was the worlds best teach by example person I knew. I've never seen anybody show more love to everyone around him especially his sweet wife. His joy and love he brought to this world could never be replaced. Our love and prayers go out to your family at this time. Until we meet again.

Heaven gained another one of my heroes. Kirt Lamb was one of the most kind, honorable, spiritual, and loving people I have ever met. He and his wife Joann are the kind of people you aspire to be and truly live the law of love thy neighbor. The love and compassion he and his lovely wife gave me and my entire family will never be forgotten. I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to know Kirt Lamb and can only imagine the rejoicing that took place as he returned to his Father in Heaven.

Aunt JoAnn and the whole family, so sad to hear about Uncle Kirt. He has always been such a wonderful uncle to all of us. I will treasure the time and hugs we shared in October at Mom's funeral. We send all of our North Carolina love and thoughts to you. Richard and Carrie and all the kids.
