    Ron & Kirk, I was so sorry to read about the passing of your mother and grandmother. I'm not sure if you remember me, but I used to tutor Kirk at Mrs. Coleman's house some after school plus took him to the zoo. ( I worked at Bruce Drysdale and had Kirk in class) I just remember how precious she was. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. She will truly be missed.
