To the family of Mr. George Miller Kirby, Jr. My mother and I wish to express our sincerest condolences to you. At such a time as this we've found that the Bible provides not only encouraging, insightful and educational information, but it also provides the best of comforting words as well. When you've time, please consider reading a few of our favorite texts: Isaiah 25:8; 1Corinthians 15:26 and Revelation 21:3, 4. Please be assured that these promises are true because God cannot lie. (Titus 1:2) Until this wonderful promise has become the reality it will become from Jehovah God by means of His Son Christ Jesus, we wish family and friends peace and comfort that Jehovah, the God of comfort will bring you. (2Corinthians 1:3, 4) Our most heartfelt regards, Joyce & Stacy Howard.

Mr.Kirby will truly be missed. I had the pleasure of providing care for Mr. George while at Sentara Rehab. He thought the world of his "boys", as he would say. Especially those early morning Newspaper drop offs. He would always tell me "I'm looking to see if any of my friends are in the obituary section"! I didn't know him long, but he was surely a nice man to me!! I send my deepest sympathy and condolences to the family during this time of loss!!

Craig and family,
Your father can never be more than a thought away. When you have your father’s memories with you, he will always reside in your heart. Thoughts and prayers are with you. Live each day with purpose, with action, with positivity, and with encouragement. Your father will be very proud of you and smile down on you.
