    Cathy and Rick, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember when you and I were pregnant together 38 years ago, and enjoying our precious little guys. I remember the day he was born and what a joy that was, and then when my first born entered the word you were my first visitor in the hospital. I was so sad to see that your son had passed away, and the tragic way he was snatched. My heart was so sad for you. Please know that you and your family are in my prayers.

    I went to school with Kyle. Very quiet guy. We were more like acquaintances than friends but knew of one another. He was a very chilled guy back in school. Never would hurt a fly on the wall. Kept to himself but had a few close friends along the way. Kyle I’m sorry you were taken away at such a young age. I know you leave back many great memories and laughs. My prayers are sent to your family and friends. Much respect brother.

    Cathy and Rick I am so very sorry about your son. I know the families whose loved ones he saved will be eternally grateful to him.

  12. Michael Kreiman

    Kyle is a great man. I've worked with him for 11 years. He was always quiet at work but I always made him talk with me when we would get a few free minutes. Everyone at work has done nothing but talk about how they miss him. Even though he was quiet he came in did his job and never made a complaint. I honestly wish I would of made more of an effort to be more of a friend then just a coworker. Rest easy buddy!
