Clay and my dad (Corbin Kirby) were close. Our families grew up great distances apart so I didnt know Clay on a personal level. He has a good name and reputation. Clays funeral was before I knew about him being interred here in the Galen Cemetery near his family. To the family I apologize I just didnt know about it in time for visiting and funeral service. May our God comfort each of you in this time of grief. Corbain & Rettas son, Glen Kirby

Mr. Kirby, I will miss you. You touched my heart and I felt like I understood you. I think you felt that too. You earned a special place in my heart. I will never forget our talks. I hope you are resting peacefully. It was an honor to care for you.
