RIP Kirk

It is with great sadness that I take the time to post this short blog.

Recently I posted about a band Ryan and I went to see in Indy called Splitlip Rayfield. I briefly explained the lead singer's battle with throat cancer.

I knew it would probably be the last time I saw him, but I had no idea the end was so near.

On February 22, Kirk Rundstrom lost his battle. I am so thankful he made the choice to go out on the road one last time before he passed away. That had to take a huge amount of courage and strength, both physically and emotionally. The last few shows of the tour were actually cancelled due to his rapid deterioration. We had the pleasure of his presence in Indy only 3 weeks ago, and now he's gone.

Kirk leaves behind two little girls Ellie and Mollie, and his wife Lisa. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Kirk was only 37 years old.

I pray he is at peace................

Awww. I saw that he had died. I've never seen the band but I knew you all had went to see them not to long ago, I was going to e-mail you and tell you he had died. It's so sad. I'm glad you guys got to see him.
