I just wanted to say that my heart goes out to Kirk's family. I just want to let all of you know that kirk was my neighbor at work and he welcome with open arms to the team. He knew if get frustrated on a call he would always give me chocolate kisses to make me feel better. Kirk was a very sweet and loving person and I will truly miss him.
Kirk- I was so saddened to hear of your passing, its hard to believe that a work colleague has passed. I am hopeful with time your family (especially your mother) will have peace. May your family be wrapped in love and understanding during this time and after â€" during the late nights and early mornings.
I'm going to miss how much he'd talked about the Nebraska CornHuskers. this will officially be my favorite college football team
