Bob Kirby Memorial Service

A message from Bobs Family

I am so sorry to tell all of you this. My Dad, Bob Kirby, passed away December 20th at 4:45 pm. He became very ill and his body just couldn't take anymore. Our family has lost a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, mentor, and friend. He will be sadly missed by all. With the holiday in a few days we have decided to wait until Saturday December 27th to celebrate his life. We will gather at the Shamrock Club of Columbus at 1:00pm for a service. After the service we would like everyone to join us in the pub to honor him in Irish style.
Please enjoy your holiday and give your family and friends lots of hugs and hold them dear to your heart.
Thank you all for your concern and prayers.
If you listen quietly you may be able to hear the bagpipes in his honor.

Karen and the entire Kirby Family.

Thank you for the mention. I was not aware that we had told you about the new CD, but we definitely appreciate the attention.
