My heart was saddened when I heard of Kyles' passing. Kyle worked with us for many years. In his work, he was very conscientious to give his best effort and he was appreciated by all his many customers and friends and he will be missed.
My prayers go out to his family and friends that they can find peace in their hearts from the good memories that Kyle provided all of us.

Not a day goes by that I don't think of Kyle and the memories we shared that live on in my heart. My thoughts continue to be with his family during this difficult time.

It has been many years since I saw Kyle but I have precious memories of my times with the Simmons family. They "adopted" me and made me a part of their family over 30 years ago. I will never forget their kindness to me. I was an only child and so many years ago Kyle was an older "Brother" and Todd, my younger "Brother". My thoughts and prayers are with all of Kyle's family. I hope to meet him again at Jesus' feet.
