    This is one of those moments when time seems to stand still! Many happy memories come flooding forward. It’s a time when there is little distinction between friends and family because our relationships are joined by Christ. Melissa, Lauren, Matt the Norman family is praying for you and loving you. We are thankful for the life story Kyle leaves to encourage us all.

    My prayers are with the family during this tragic time. I did not know him personally except in passing here at LifeWay. He was always very kind and very much the Southern gentleman.

    Melissa, Lauren, & Matthew…my sympathies for your loss. Kyle was a great guy. I always looked forward to seeing him, and will always remember him as funny, ambitious, laid-back, and genuinely happy to be beside Melissa. Those Sundays after church will always be fond memories…hanging out at Larry’s.
    Rest In Peace Kyle.

    We grew up in church together. We were good friends. We learned to play guitar and sang together. I will miss him.

    I’ve had a lot of friends over the years, but Kyle was someone Special ! We had a lot of fun over the years playing golf together and hanging out at our Sunday School party’s.
    I was so blessed to know him as a brother in Christ most of all.
