Claudia and Mrs. Kirk, my prayers are with you and your family. Governor Kirk was a wonderful man.

I met Governor Kirk for the first time at USF in 1970 or 71. He spoke to a group of student activists while sitting in a rocker outside the college center. One of the more radical types handed him a live rat snake, hoping to unsettle him, but the Governor just petted the snake, continued to speak to us, and casually handed the snake to his aide. I became a fan at that moment, and almost 40 years later it remains one of my fondest moments. His grace under pressure was legendary, and I was able to witness it firsthand.

Mr Kirk was a wonderful Governor and very nice when I met him and his baby,I almost got shot by his security.He had his security to take the picture and he got in the picture between Nelda Hicks and I.
Our thoughts and Prayers are with the Family and May God Bless You.

I am a Nurse at the VA and when ever he came to the 5th floor he always stopped in to see me. How he loved that old battered dirty State Troopers Hat!!! I saw him on Monday and he did not have the hat on so I asked him where was the hat. He told me that it was raining so he left it in the car so it wouldn't get wet. He always asked about my familly and had a joke for me. He had a wonderful sense of humor. The last thing he said to me was about my hair. He wanted to know what I had done to my hair because it looked better than the last time he saw me.
I did not live in FLorida when he was Govenor but I got to know the man. My life has been enriched by knowing him.
My deepest sympathy to his family. Rest in Peace Governor Kirk.
