I’m so sorry for your loss. Kyle was a good friend of mine through high school. We had some great times with all our friends in Homecroft. I lost touch with him around 1990 and just got back in touch with him this summer through Karen Glasser. I was hoping to see him next summer. He will be missed by many especially me but I already missed him! Again sorry for your loss I know it has to be hard for you.
