Dear Cindy and family, my heart goes out to all of you. I had the pleasure of meeting Kirby when I was an account executive in the Mortgage industry. It was always a pleasure talking with Kirby every time I stopped in his office. He always talked about his family and the annual golf outing. There were many fun talks with him and I will miss him for that. God Bless all of you.

Shari, Bryce and Myself wanted to give our prayers and say that Kirby and his entire family have been an important part of our lives. From the introduction of Shari to me, to working side-by-side with Kirby, to enjoying the annual golf outing in Menominee, to having a social friendship we have enjoyed every part of knowing the Pierce family. Kirby will be a missed sole. I love the entire Pierce family and am sorry for your loss.

Kirby appears to be a real " genuine" fun-loving and "gentlemanly" Son' Husband,Dad,Relative, and Friend!! After viewing Kirby's handsome stature and "winning" smile; I feel a real sense of loss by not having had the priviledge of being a part of his inner-circle!! Kirby appears to be the type one would want as a close friend and confidante! May God's blessings be upon family and friends alike, during the days and years of our remembrance of Kirby's life amoungst us!! Prayers to all! Darrell-n-Mavis Swartwood (Janice-Larry and Randy's first Cousin)

We were saddened to learn of Kirby's early passing. We wish to pass on our heartfelt condolences knowing that Kirby is no longer with us to spend time. I had the great pleasure to know Kirby in the last two years of High School at Menomonie, and on the basketball court. Kirby was always a jovial friendly character to be around.
