    Betty…my mom just called me and told me about Kyle. I am so sorry for your loss…he was a kind man and I will always remember him for the great fish fries he provided my mom and dad and that they often shared with us! I was always amazed by his fascination with food…something he and my mom seem to share! He also had a great laugh! I’m sorry I’m not there to give you a hug right now…we won’t be back in Michigan until late April…but please know we are thinking about you and sending hugs your way!!!

    Loretta and Vicki,
    I am sorry to hear of the loss of Uncle Kyle. I did not know his current wife, but please give her my condolences. He was the last of the great “Moore Men”. I am sure he is in heaven now with my Dad and Uncle Jr. going on about all their great fishing trips to anyone that will listen.
    You will be in my prayers,
    Your cousin,
