Our dad was our world and words can not describe all that he was to us. When I think of my dad, I'm reminded of how much of a great guy he was. Always around when needed but leaving us alone to live our lives the way we wanted. I will always be daddy's little girl and to my brother's he will always be their best friend. He was loved and respected by everyone that knew him. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. Most called him Uncle Kirk or brother. He always had a smile on his face and was always the life of the party. Growing up rules were not to be broken, but with the grandkids, there weren't any rules that applied. They all loved him so much and could never wait until the next visit.
