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!!!
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.
Im at a loss for words... you were always a phone call away when I needed an answer. Such a great guy. Our Lord has taken an Earth Angel from us. Rest in Peace
I love you Uncle Kirk!
Kirk was a very fine man who took pride in his work. I have known Cindy forever, and it was a pleasure to get to know Kirk. We send our condolences to the family and friends. Sam and Donna Gwynn and family
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 Cindyâ€™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.

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.
