    It is with great sadness that I send my deepest condolences. Kirk was the love of Cindy's heart. He was the kindest person who had a smile for everyone. I know he will live forever in Cindy, Kristen, Jordan, and Keeley.
    Cindy is one of the brightest employees Lamar has. I am so proud to call her my dear friend. May God be with you all. Mary Gagne Patton

    It’s a tough day as I face the realization that my dear friend Kirk is gone. I have had the personal and professional pleasure of working with Kirk for many years. I will miss his calls and joking around with him. Jordan, I know you are going to really miss your dad. He was so proud of you! Peace and blessings to the family, and may God’s eternal light shine forever on my dear friend. RIP Kirk. You sure will be missed.

    Although I did not know Kirk personally, I know he was a fine man because Cindy loved him so. She was for years an essential member of our English Department at Lamar where I taught, and I trusted her judgment in all matters. Karen and I send our condolences and best wishes. to Cindy and the family. God bless you all.

    So very shocked and heart broken to hear our Eart Angel Kirk had to leave us so very soon to be an Angel in Heaven. I have known all the Colichia's for many years. This sad news makes my heat hurt for the family and frinds of Kirk.
    So very shocked to hear Kirk with his heart of gold had to leave us way to soon. Kirk, was always a phone call away just like his Dad was to me. Heaven truly gained an earth angel to have an angel in heaven. My love to the entire family and friends of Kirk.. We will deeply miss you.

    My deepest sympathy is with Cindy and her family in the untimely loss of Kirk.. I have lived in other places for the last quarter century, but the years I spent at Lamar relying on Cindy’s good judgment and intolerance of nonsense remain fresh in my mind. Kirk would drop by on occasion, cheerful and soft spoken.. He has left his family far too soon. God bless you all.

    It is truly sad to hear this news. I've known the Colichia family for several years and they are some of the nicest people I have ever met and had the pleasure of being around. Kirk was always so kind and would help someone in any way he could. I'm so sorry for this family's loss.

    Kirk & Cindy have been my friends & personal customers for a long time and over time I have gotten to know the whole family and I became the family's personal waittress! I love this family and Kirk is going to be missed by many that's for sure!! Kirk loved his family & I loved waiting on them when they came to Colichia's!! Whether they had a large group or a lot of times it was just Kirk & Kristen they always asked for me and sometimes even called to make sure I was working!!!
    Cindy, Jordan, Keeley, & Kristen know my heart goes out to each one of you at this very sad & difficult time!!! I love y'all! Prayers for peace & comfort!!!
