    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Kirk.

    I have so many good memories of growing up in our neighborhood playing on Kelly Street with all the kids who grew up there.

    I guess one of my funniest memories of the Mahan Family is the night Kirk went into the house to get a bath and ran up to the big picture window and stood there in all his glory for the whole neighborhood to see!!!

    Hope this gives the family a little smile during a time of grief.
