    We sure loved Mr. Kirk! He was an amazing, sweet, kind, humorous man. This world was a better place for me to have known him. I will rejoice that he is going home and is now in peace without pain. He will never be forgotten.

    I had no idea he had passed ! I am so sorry for your loss however we all know his faith was paramount to his life and he held no resistance when his Heavenly Father did call him home ! Kirk had done a fine job and his second life would be as fulfilling or more than his first is how he felt I feel sure . I know his wife will miss him and I will pray for her to have peace in her heart and mind. The three brothers that grew with him during his time in Pensacola I know will be quite cognizant of the empty seat at the table during holiday visits . His children I pray shall strive to emulate their father giving their version a portion of their own personality because we are all uniquely different and each of us hold their own interpretation of different subjects albeit they usually aren’t far apart . His grandchildren as I recall lives close and I feel sure they were able to spend precious time with him and I know as they proceed through life they shall remember his stories and they will share them so that the family heritage shall not forever be lost . Spending time with a grandparent is a gift that not everyone receives and I for one know that was one of the finest gifts I ever received was having the opportunity to know my grandmothers as a child and as an adult and also as a parent! Kirk C. Waite will always be remembered fondly because he was a true southern gentleman and his grin as well as the sparkle in his eye that appeared when he had a bright light go off in his mind can never be forgotten ! God bless this family now and always and let them forever hold In their hearts his memory and share his life’s many accomplishments with all who wish to know this great and Godly man !
