Gary was such a blessing to Avo and mysef through the years of her sickness. He would bring a smile to her face with the jokes he would play, which brought joy and happiness to her. I realize it was an expression of GOD love flowing through him giving testimony of what God had done for him when the LORD saved his soul.  
This day Gary is in Heaven enjoying the blessing of our LORD with AVO and the many individuals that he Loved at Oak Grove.
I will see you some day my dear friend

We were saddened to learn of the passing of Mr. Kirby.  In the many years of our association with Tri-County EMC, we could always depend upon his professional, dignified and caring attitude.  It was always a pleasure to work with Mr. Kirby. He will be missed.

Dear Vickie and family.  It is with a heavy heart that I send my warmest thoughts and prayers to you all.  I could not have asked for a more loving and happy extended family to be a part of, and that most certainly included Garry.  He so reminded me of Uncle Floyd and my dad, Reg McClure.  When I think of theses men who I've been blessed to call family, I think of this simple quote - "Kindness.  One of the greatest gifts you can bestow upon another.  If someone is in need, lend them a hand.  Do not wait for a 'thank you' - true kindness lies within the act of giving without the expectation of something in return."  All of these men who touched my life were kind, giving and loving.  Their examples and how they lived has shaped my life and I will forever be grateful.  I will hold you all in my heart and mind in the weeks and months to come.  Love - Deanna McClure Vent
