I worked with Kyle on 3rd shift at BSDC, he was a kind gentle soul that I was pleased and had the pleasure to get to know. My thoughts and prayers are with his family as you go through this very difficult time. He will be missed.

I did work with Kyle, and I considered a friend. I am sorry for the loss that your family has experienced.

I am deeply sorry for the family's loss. I worked with Kyle at BSDC. I did not actually see him very often as I was home manager and he worked 3rd shift. However, I found I truly loved it when he came in to visit with me. He always seemed to be a kind and gentle soul, and reading his obituary, it appears he was in all areas of his life as well. The world has been a better place and blessed by Kyle's presence in it. May he rest in peace, may his family and friends be comforted, and may you all one day be reunited together again in love. Amen.
