It was with great  sadness that I learned of Kirk's sudden death on August 7, 2009, nearly 8 years after his jouney of a new life had begun. Although I could write many things about Kirk, the one thing that stands out is his infectious smile and willingness to help others. He has many friends worldwide that will miss him deeply. He was like a brother to me and as such will also be missed, but never forgotten.

 There are a few tribut sites for Kirk. Please visit them.



His original site:

Click on the picture above to be taken to my Obesityhelp.com profile. Without the people I met in chat on that site, I probably would not have considered surgery, nor would I have ever met some of the most loving, caring, genuine people on the planet.

Addendum:Too bad that right before my surgery, I had a run-in with a moderator and now I am permanently banned from the chat room. It was a great source of support and I miss all my friends. If you stop by there, tell 'em ArkyMark says Hello!

Its funny to see what 12 months can do for a person.
This pic was taken Feb. 26, 2002, just 5.5 months after my gastric bypass surgery.

I can't imagine being the person in the top picture ever again.
