This is easily one of the saddest days of my life. I was infatuated w/ Kirby as a kid, and he'll always be my favorite. He had such a negative light shed on him after his career was over. I witnessed so many kind acts on Kirby's behalf.
I was at a caravan once w/ Kirby, Hunter, and J. Jones. He was just ripping on those two guys. They were loving it, they were like deer in headlights. I can about imagine how impacted they are by this event. He always, and I mean always took time for fans. I was at the metrodome in the late 80's. He was walking along the wall signing autographs. I was just a kid, so my arm didn't quite reach out as much as the everyone elses. He walked right past me, I was devastated. He saw the look on my face, turned back, and signed my card.
