    I'm sorry I never met Kirby but if Michael is anything like his father I am sure he was a very caring and wonderful man. I have had the opportunity to know Michael from working at City Hall and he is such a nice person all around and I am sure is a reflection of his father. My condolences on your loss and my God Bless you in your time of grief.
