Kirk your birthday was a road trip to NH, alot different to the ones we spent in Carolina. 25th.
love you dad
Your words and actions created a spark in my heart, a spark that has led to a flame, which now shines bright. I will continue to let my light shine and hope to spread the flame and create a spark in others, so they too may be illuminated.
Thank You for enlightening me.
You are never forgotten, and your legacy lives on.
Thank you for changing my life for the better, and always being someone I can look to for help, even to this day, your words, memories, and thoughts with you continue to keep me going strong and to never stop believing.
Thanks for showing me the "magic."
Love You Bro!!
You are so missed, Kirk.
Captain Kirk, I love buddy.
Your 24 today, not a moment goes by I'm not thinking of you.
Dream't bout us playing together in a soccer game you were the goalie, kinda funny I was on the field, I didn't do to bad. One of my best games.
I miss you buddy, one year and the pain grows, try not to let get too bad, knowing you wouldn't want that.
love you son
I pray may God fill you and your family with Love and Hope. Peace be with you all always. Amen.
On 8/5/13 it was 1 year. Missing you Kirk as much as the day you left us. Thank you for the joy you brought us.
11 months today. We are trying. We are trying. Kirk, we think of you every single day and come across things which constantly remind us of you. You were remembered this past month in weddings, friends, and memories. You should be here making us laugh, think, and learn.. Kirk, thank you for the friends you made
who keep us going. Love you.
10 months today. Quoting you, Kirk, "Same pain, different day."
Love you to pieces,
Today is your #3 day and I have been contacted by 2 of your close UNC friends. Miss you so much. Thank you for the friends you made and may God bless them.
I'm so numb about all this, Please give us all the strength to continue with our lives, I know you would want us too, I love to talk about you, there are so many amazing things to look back on.
Love you buddy.
Just thinking of you today Sandy. Hope you and your family are doing well.
Remembering you today, buddy. Miss you so much!
Sandy, So sorry, I just read the Obituary. This should never happen to a parent, my deepest sympathy. My number is 847-417-2979.
9 months today.So surreal! Still can't believe you are gone. Now we don't laugh or love quite as much as we used to when you were here.
I miss you so much, we switched cars so I can work on yours. I have done a lot to it, you would be so happy with it. Especially with the new radio and speakers. I have to do a couple of other things to get it perfect and I will.
Miss you buddy, love you always.
Life is not returning to normal. There is no normal without you here as you epitomized life, Kirk. You were there for others every minute you lived.
Love you so much,
...well I've been afraid of changes cause I built my whole world around you....
8 months today. I fear I am losing the way you made me feel when I walked with you, shared this earth with you. I pray you are happy, and surrounded by God's beauty and peace. Tears are on the edge every minute. Love you so much.
Miss your kind words and inspiration. You were so right about everything Kirk!
Happy Easter! What we wouldn't give to color eggs and go to Mass with you as we did last year! It seems like yesterday. I can still here you laughing. Dad and I pray that God is with you as often as you are on our mind. We love you and miss you and still can't believe you have left us. Thank you for those friends that have been a constant in our lives as we journey till we see you.
Mrs. Urso, We don't know eachother but my kids knew your boys. You and your family are in my prayers. Kirk was an inspiration to so many!
Thinking of you today Sandy and wishing you peace
Kirk, today is your day 3:15. The pain of you leaving us hasn't stopped, but seems to be worse. You were so much a part of our every day. I miss talking to you more than you can know. I relive, I refeel, I regret. I am trying really hard to live without your love thru God's help, but it is the hardest thing I will ever have to do. You remind me of a snowflake, so beautiful, so intricate, but then as you watch it land on a windowpane it disappears in a second. Love you so much, Kirk. This seems so unreal.
Sandy and family.
Sandy I'm Jennifer that worked with you a couple of times. I am in the Naperville office. I am so very sorry for your loss and I do miss you around. Kirk sounds like an amazing person and I can't help but ache hearing you and your family's pain. I pray he is watching over you. You were blessed with a wonderful son...God bless you all and know that Kirk is doing everything he can for everyone in heaven.
Happy B-day Kirk (23). I replay your life in my head over and over, remembering all the tournaments, practices, and jus being home celebrating the holidays. I miss you little buddy.
March 6, 2013
Kirk today you would have been 23 years old. We pray that you feel the love of all those on earth who send their love, especially us.
Mom and Dad
Today is a Kirk day #3. May God hold you as tight as me and dad would if you were here with us. Miss you my little guy.
Even when you're gone you always know how to bring me up when I'm feeling down. You inspire me to do better for myself and you've shown me that you can truly do anything if you put in the work. You are the type of person I aspire to be like. I'm truly blessed to have known you and have you as a role model in my life.
One of my favorite quotes from you is "Rainy morning turned into a beautiful day. Don't let what you can't control shake you. Circumstances change, character remains!!"
You help me to remember that no matter what life throws at you, at the end of the day, it's truly what you make of it and how you react to it - that no matter what happens, to always stay true to yourself and never let the negative circumstances bring you down!!
So thank you so much. You're actions and leadership inspire me to make my life better and to positively affect those around me. It amazes me that you've done so much for me and my life and you didn't even try. Your positive energy and personality has been infectious to everyone who's been around you, and I can only hope to be a fraction of that to those in my life. I won't try my hardest, I will DO my hardest, to make a difference.
Thank you so much! and I think about you all of the time.
Love you bro!
If I had a dozen roses, I know just what I'd do
I'd give each one a name that reminded me of you
The first rose I'd call sunshine, because you brightened everyday
The second would be beauty, the kind that never goes away
The third rose would be priceless, like those hugs you gave to me
I'd name the fourth rose silly, oh how funny you could be
Rose five of course is patience, something you have helped me find
The sixth rose would be memories, the gift you left behind
The seventh and the eighth rose would for sure be faith and grace
Nine would be unique because no one can take your place
The tenth rose well that's easy, I'd simply name it love
Eleven would be angel, I know you're watching from above
I'd think about that twelfth rose, and I'd really take my time
After all these roses are for you my Valentine
I'm sending them to heaven in every color that I know
So twelve I'll name forever, that's how long I'll love you so
...and I..........will always love you..........
Kirk, 6 months ago today you left us here on earth. We experience the same pain of your loss today as we did on that summer day. We long for that hug you always gave when you walked beside us, the jokes that made us laugh, and the love that was shown by you every single minute. A friend of yours told me last night that you had a heart of gold and can't understand how this giving heart failed you. It's been snowing and it's beauty makes me think of you constantly. Kirk, we still cannot believe you are gone or the reason why you were taken from us. We love you to the moon and back.
I miss you and think about you every day. I hope heaven is everything you talked about and more.
Kirk, I love you and miss you so much!
Today you have been gone 150 days. The pain is like it happened yesterday. Praying for you everyday.
Today begins a new year, bfd.
I prefer the old years, I will always cherish those years, especially the ones you were home with us.
LOVE YOU KIRK.
2012 was a terrible year, but Kirk you knew it and it knew you! Hoping you will be looking out for those who miss you terribly in 2013. God, please look over those who have been there for us through this loss of Kirk and continue to be. Their comfort, calls, emails, and time spent with us is priceless. Good-bye 2012 and precious Kirk.
Having visiting family on Christmas, not a moment went by that I didn't think of you. We were suppose to have been together this holiday, I had looked so forward to it. The emptiness I feel is bottomless. I will never forget buddy.
I LOVE YOU KIRK.
Merry Christmas Kirk. Memories could never compare to the joy and laughter you brought to our lives when you were here with us. I pray that God keeps you wrapped in his arms on this birthday of Jesus. I love you more than you can ever know.
It's Christmas Eve. Looking back, who would have ever thought you would be gone, Kirk. There is complete emptiness without the joy you brought to us all the past 22 years. You were always so happy, goofing around, making jokes. Kirk, I miss you so much. Love you.
Today marks 4 months since you passed away. It was a horribly, sad day. We continue to question why the gift of life was taken away from someone so beautiful and loving. You are in my thoughts and prayers constantly. Miss you, buddy.
Today , Dec 3rd, one of your days. Miss your beautiful smile, your loving ways, your laughter and compliments. Love you so much! This is the hardest thing we have ever had to deal with. Why? Why?
We'll never say good-bye. We pray we'll see you later. You had so much more to live and give. Thank you for being a part of our lives. We love you.
Kirk, today is 100 days since you have been gone. The sadness hits harder as this would have been time we all could have finally spent together as you would have been given a break. Dad and I go over and over the last week and days you were alive, wishing we were with you and if it would have made a difference. You took such good care of yourself, worrying about every pain you had, not knowing the most important part of you was damaged...your heart. Kirk, thank you for the joy you brought to us. We suffered with every pain you went through and celebrated every joy. Kirk, I miss you so much!!!
3 months ago today was the worst day of our lives. We think about all the things you'll never get to do. Thank you for always listening and being interested in our lives. You were a precious gem. It is still so hard to believe you are gone. Walk with me, please, Kirk.
Kirk, it has been 3 months since you last lived. You lived a life of joy and gratitude for all you were given. Even though things were often tough, you let your character shine through. You inspired me so much and made me realize the ridiculousness of fretting over little things. You laughed. You smiled. You loved. You are missed!
Kirk, miss you so much! I long for your talks, hugs, and laughter.
This year, 2012, was the worst year of our lives. You videotaped yourself wondering what the year would bring. Who would have thought that you would be gone and our lives would forever be changed. I am trying real hard to love without you, but darkness clouds everything. Praying that you are in God's glory.
Love you to pieces,
Everyday I think of how caring you were. You never took the last of anything without making sure no one else wanted it first. You enjoyed people and conversation over material things. You are missed more than there are stars in the sky.
Love you forever,
Kirk, Today is 2 months since you left us. I am heartbroken without you, my little angel. Oh to see you again. I remember you saying "different day, same pain," when referring to your leg. That is now what I am saying. I hope God is hugging you like we used to. Miss you my little man.
You are such a special person. I remember being in class with you in 5th grade. You had a glow surrounding you, a golden child. I know your family misses you very much and I imagine you being away from them is difficult. I just wanted to say hello and let you know that I keep your family in my prayers. I know you're doing well and still moon walking. =)
Kirk, there is a silence without you, a dead silence. You were such a joy. I was looking at the water on the Great Bay today...the sun made it glisten and sparkle on the top, and it reminded me of you. Love you little buddy.
Today marks 50 days since you left us. To me it seems like forever, to dad it seems like yesterday. We are still getting tributes and hearing about how special you were. Kirk, I want to talk to you so badly. Conversations with you were so enlightening. You always filled a room with laughter. We got to see many of your Crew and Fire teammates who miss you also. Twinkle, twinkle little star. Please send us a little wink that you are ok.
So sorry for the loss of your beloved Kirk. May family and friends find comfort in God's promise in Isaiah 61:1,2.
Hey Kirk its Dad, I love you buddy.
The days are long and hard without you, I think of that kirk smile, I cherish the weekend we were together, playing mini-golf, frisbe golf, teasing mom. jus a pat on the head, let me know your ok. I love you kiiiiiirrrrrrrkkkkk.
Kirk, God blessed me with you for only 22 years. I hope you know how much you meant to me. I remember our last walk together. We heard music and tried to find out where it was coming from. I miss you so much, buddy. Please let me know you are ok.
Ann and I were watching a video of Kirk the other day and thinking of him. I want you to know I still say a little prayer for you every day
Kirk, I think about you every minute of the day. I would give my world to see you smile, hear your jokes and feel your hug. I miss you so much!
Having just lost a nephew, I can feel the pain you must be going through. Please be assured that our heavenly Father is feeling your pain as well. One day we will all be re-united here on this earth, and until that time may the memories of Kirk live on in your heart. Sincerely, Melissa
To the family of Kirk Urso, may I am sorry for your loss. Be assured of God's love and comfort.1 John 3:20- God is greater than our hearts and knows all things. God give you comfort and peace by means of prayer. (Philipians 4:6,) It is with my deepest sympathies that I send my condolences.
I remember watching Kirk play for the Sockers FC. He was amazing. He obviously loved the game and it loved him. Watching him play was a thing of beauty. I will never forget it. My heart aches for his family. Bless you as you grieve.
Sandy, Mike and Kyle,
We just learned of your tragic lose yesterday (8-28). Words cannot express how our hearts when we found out. Great memories of Kirk's growing up years will always be remembered!! Kirk knew he was so loved by you both as you were there for all he did and accomplished in his life. You all will be in our thoughts and prayers for weeks to come.
Kirk, I think about you every minute of the day. Everything reminds me of you...the sun (you opened the shades every day to let it in), the grass (the many walks we took where you shared your thoughts), the plants (you helped me divide and replant them), books (which you loved to read), pictures (your ever changing hair and your beautiful smile), I could go on and on. Kirk, I can't believe I'll never see what else you had to offer this world. I am hearing every day of what wonderful things you did for people. I love you! I miss you!
We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to your family from a California soccer family who saw Kirk play once in Santa Barbara and were in awe of his talent. We can't imagine the pain and sorrow you are feeling. You are in our prayers.
My sincere condolences go out to the immediate and extended family of Mr. Kirk Urso...such an impressionable young man who definitely was a leader both on the field and off. May we never forget the positive impact he made in all settings and with records that may never be eclipsed in our life time. Respectfully submitted by Artemus Flagg, Ph. D., LPC - Charlotte, NC
. I am sorry for your loss. Be assured of God's love and comfort.1 John 3:20- God is greater than our hearts and knows all things.
Dear Mr & Mrs Urso, Kyle, & Erica,
I am so sorry to hear about Kirk. He will be forever in your hearts. Be strong. Love and Prayers
To the Urso Family; God looked around His garden And found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth And saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful; he always takes the best. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb, So He closed your weary eyelids and whispered "Peace be thine" It broke our hearts to lose you But you didn't go alone. For part of us went with you The day God called you home. Our thoughts and Prayers are with you..
As a 22 year old who just finished his senior year of collegiate soccer, I can't imagine what those of you close to Kirk are going through. As soon as I heard this story, I could only think of how my own parents and siblings would get through something like this, how my friends would react, and how all of my teammates would take the news. The only thing I can hope is that the outpouring of support to those close to Kirk provides them with comfort of knowing what a magnificent life he lived and the amount of people he touched during his time on Earth. Heroes get remembered, but legends never die. RIP Kirk. KU15
my prayers go out to your family, hope they can find some comfort in these words
Mike, Sandy & Kyle,
Our sincerest condolences on your tragic loss. Kirk will forever be remembered as a bright and energetic person. He touched the lives of each of his teammates. God has plans for Kirk, and those plans are perfect. Know that the Lombard Lightning is thinking of and praying for you all.
Sandy and family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. I am so sorry for your loss. If you need anything please dont hesitate to call me. My thoughts will be with you
To the Urso Family: I am thinking of you and praying for you. Another angel in heaven - I hope Kirk and Johhny get a good scrimmage going up there. Please know I am here if you ever need to talk.
In the Olympics of life, Kirk got the gold!!!!!
I am so sorry for your loss. I know losing a loved is hard to go through. I hope you can gain comfort from God's future promise.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We had the honor of knowing you all when our boys were at Manor Hill together. Blessings, Bill, Mary, Matthew, Ryan and Alex Cwiklinski
Keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. We are so sorry for your loss. God Bless you and your family at this time of need
The Miller Family
Micheal and the entire Urso fanily
I am so sorry to hear of your loss.
There are no words that can express what a sad day it is. My prayers to you and your family
You touched the lives of so many of us. God bless you
sweet child and peace to your family.
we like all in the Tar Heel Family were shocked and saddened by this news. Kirk was a great guy that words cannot begin to tell, he always treated us with respect, I know Cameron and the rest of us will miss him dearly
Dear Urso Family -
Keeping you in our hearts and prayers. From his time in Residency to his tenure with The Crew, Tre' and Kirk will forever be team mates; he will truly be missed. God Bless...
Sandy, thinking about you and your family! Hugs and love .
sandy...my heart aches for you. you are in my thoughts and prayers
Condolences to the Urso family, Kirk was an amazing person. It was an absolute pleasure to have known such a kind and fun loving person. He will truly be missed. May he rest in peace.
I went to high school with Kirk's older brother, Kyle. Kyle was always so proud of Kirk and they were very close. My deepest sympathy goes out to the Urso family, especially Kyle, his friends and teammates. Kirk has left his mark here with quite a legacy and now will be watching down on his family from heaven. Love you guys. Xo
My prayers are with the Urso family and all his friends. Thanks Kirk for the many laughs over the years in Chapel Hill. Thank you for always making people smile, helping people to feel comfortable, and always being you. I bet your rapping skills are on point now up in heaven!
I am truly sadden and so very sorry for the loss of your son...words can not describe your deepest feelings... my deepest prayers for Kirk's family..and also to the Crew for the loss of such a valued player...
As Kyle's little Brother he was a joy to be around as a kid who always gave back to the Lombard Park District by playing and helping other players despite being an accomplished player with Sockers FC. He'll be missed.
We didnt know Kirk all that well as they were our new neighbors, but when we saw him he was always smiling, saying Hi to us and was always very polite! We are sadden by his lost and send our thoughts and prayers to the Urso family and the entire Columbus Crew soccer team... May God rest your soul Kirk.
I only got to spend time with Kirk on a few occasions but I will never forget how impressed I was the first time I met him. Always kind, fun loving and was a true all around nice guy. His parents should be proud of the young man they raised. He will be missed. May his family find comfort in the memories they have, you are in my prayers.
My heart and thoughts go out to the Urso family. RIP Kirk. I remember him from the days of Manor Hill and always knew he would be go on to be successful. Lombard is thinking of you.
O for a day to walk again slow through a forest deep O for the time to talk again before I go to sleep O for the warmth of summer sun the chill of winters eve and O for the chance to sing my song once more before I go O for the scent of autumn air brisk clean and cold O for the chance to travel where the seas are blue and bold O for the prayer I never prayed O for the kiss I never kissed and O for the chance to sing my song once more while yet I missed cry of bird and wail of wind word unspoken sin un-sinned a night to dance a hill to climb the chance to sing while there is time O for the taste of meat and ale to linger on my tongue O for the sight of hill and dale and faces that are young O for the hand of one I love the time to bloom and grow and O for the chance to sing my song once more before I go.
May the peace of God be with all of you now and forever.
You were always a great friend and an inspiration to us all. Words cannot describe how lost at heart we all are with the news of your passing. Much love Kirk. I know you have big things ahead of you. God bless you and your family and please keep watching us from above. Love you brother.
Too young, too soon. RIP.
