Coach Kirkland,

I just found the news about your passing. I am sorry this is so late. I've had a lot of men influence me in my life. Only a few of them are among those whose counsel I readily reflect upon in times of challenge. You are one of those men.

You taught us how to reach deep inside ourselves and achieve more than what we thought possible. You taught us how the only way to success is with a team you can count on. You taught us that no matter how good any one person might be at something, there can be no "Prima Donnas". So many good lessons that in my opinion are lacking in people today.

I still have scars on my hands from catching myself while doing "Pete Roses", but I learned so much playing basketball for you in high school.

I tried several times to look you up on the internet so that when I was stateside I could come visit. The last time we saw one another was at my wedding, in June of 1980. I was so amazed and honored that you took the time to come.

It sounds like you had a good life after Bandera. My crew has grown. 4 kids, all married with kids of their own. NINE grandkids - and counting! Passing along a lot of the same principles you taught me.

My Dad passed away a couple of weeks before you (June 11). I was with him at the end and we got to talk. I wish I had been able to visit you and tell you how much you meant to me. Guess this will have to do.

Rest peacefully... I love you and will miss you.

The one and only brother-in- law I had but the best brother- in -law ever. We'd have serious talks about life and then again he could make me laugh until I wet myself. Gave me handsome/beautiful nieces and nephews that I totally think the world of. You'll be missed Hulon. Nancy will be well taken care of so don't worry about her nor the family. Love you.
