Dear Kirk ...
Far away from Europe
Kirk was in our lives more than you think
Straight forward and in shape a life time long

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

If there's ever a man who has truly lived in life, it's Kirk Douglas. In my opinion, he's the greatest Hollywood actor ever. What is it that this man did not accomplish during his lifetime?

As a youngster I would watch Mr. Douglas's films, and if it was a Western, or a historical role that he played I enjoyed is quality acting. And as I grew up, I learned that his life was also a Quality - Act, I was glad not to hear of scandal, divorce, or other issue that plague Hollywood about him. He showed me a strength, a calm and a confidence that should be the values of all humans. Thank you Mr. Douglas, You were My Hero.

Dear Mike and Catherine, it is with deep condolences that I mourn the loss of your father (and in-law). Though I met him only once, he seemed to be a greater than life person. God bless & keep him.

Kirk wrote a wonderful autobiography. I recommend reading it.
His exceptional portrayal of a WW1 French Officer in the movie Paths of Glory is especially remembered. Kirk was also outstanding in The Bad & the Beautiful.
Burt Lancaster & Kirk made a terrific duo together. Goodbye Kirk.

My heartfelt sympathy, and thoughts and prayers, to Anne Douglas, Michael Douglas, Catherine, Peter, Joel, the kids and grandkids, and the entire family of the great actor, and legend, humanitarian, beloved father, and grandfather, Kirk Douglas. So sad to all of you, for your loss!! He was an inspiration to all! What a full and long life he lived! May he rest in peace.

Loving messages continue for Kirk. He was a beloved gentleman who entertained millions of people worldwide during his long career. He wrote excellent books too. He was a multi talented man. Kirk RIP---------AJM
