Condolences for the family of “Kyle Lee Simpson”

Condolence from Rick Johnson on February 6th, 2013 12:00 am

A good man taken much too early. This world was a better place because of him and I was proud and blessed to have called him my friend. Like many people who make a difference in the world, his heart was too big to last long. I imagine him “poking” fun at God in heaven about now. Rest in peace my friend.

Condolence from Susan Jackson on February 6th, 2013 12:00 am

Condolence from Mike Pearson on February 7th, 2013 12:00 am

Dear Kyle’s Family and Friends, I’m sending friendly regards Your way. Kyle sent me encouragement via the internet, in the past few months. I first met Kyle about 48 years ago when we lived about eight houses apart. That’s when our family moved into the neighborhood. Even then, he expressed his feeling that he might not live as long as some others. He was always nice. It’s a mystery to me that I didn’t get to know Kyle better. Maybe it was because the paper route that my brothers and I did… went the other direction on our street. Afternoons were probably when friends played the most. I’m sure we did meet a couple of times in the shelterbelt, a row of trees behind both our homes. Dear ones, Sympathy… and confidence that Kyle’s life awaits in Heaven. Respectfully and Sincerely Yours

Condolence from Rick & Suzanne Johnson on February 7th, 2013 12:00 am

Dear Jennie, Anni & Emily,
We are with you in prayer through this time of great loss. It was so unexpected.
I always looked forward to Kyle’s calls for Rick, especially when Rick wasn’t here…Kyle would just talk to me and tell me how much he loved his old friends, but mostly, he’d tell me how much he loved you ladies. How wonderful & important each of you were to him. It was always a good conversation that always ended with God Bless You. Be at peace, we will see him again. But, we’ll miss him like crazy! Kyle was a good man, we are so sorry he’s gone.

Condolence from Lane on February 8th, 2013 12:00 am

We will miss you Kyle. I will see you on the other side. God bless you. And God bless your wonderful family.

Condolence from Phillip Hendrickson on February 8th, 2013 12:00 am

Kyle,
you were always great to be around, I thank God that we reconnected on facebook. thankyou for your priceless friendship, thankyou.

Condolence from Doug Strand on February 9th, 2013 12:00 am

Kyle was a wonderful friend. He had a great sense of humor and a funny way of looking at things. His stories always cracked me up. I would tell him to write them down and publish them. Whenever I read Dave Barry books and articles, it reminded me of Kyle’s sense of humor. We were best friends from before Jr HS and shared many mis-adventures together. I will miss sharing a beer on the phone with him and our long talks about the ‘good ole days’. Here’s a toast to you Kyle. Good-bye buddy…we’ll meet again someday. Rest in peace. Love you man.

My heartfelt condolences to Jennie and the girls for your loss. God Bless you all.
Doug

Condolence from Rod Berry on February 10th, 2013 12:00 am

Kyle was my best friend like no other for 50 years. I am so going to miss his calls and humor as we shared a beer long distance. It was like we were really with each other. God Bless you Jennie, Anni, and Emily. You are all in my prayers daily. You are like a sister and daughters to me. Our memories of Kyle will never fade. Till I see you in Heaven Best Buddy, Cheers!

Condolence from Joann Barker on February 10th, 2013 12:00 am

Our condolences to Kyle’s family. There was never any doubt how proud he was of his family. Our families moved next door to each other in August 1963. Kyle was a shy, skinny little 7-year old. Over the years we became friends and his sense of humor emerged. I will miss his calls to keep in touch with old friends and the neighborhood. Our prayers are with you Jennie and the girls.
Kyle, Till We Meet Again.

Condolence from Kim Carter on February 15th, 2013 12:00 am

I knew Kyle from school and will always remember him as a gentleman with a wonderful sense of humor. Many years had passed since I had seen him, then one day he sent me a friend request via Facebook. He let me know that he was happily married and loved his family very much. I’m very sorry for his family and friends loss. They are in my thoughts and prayers.
