Thinking of you on your birthday....... Miss you still, my good friend. Sending love and peace to your Mom and sisters as well.
To all of my brother''s many friends. Thank you so much for your condolences and tributes. Trip was the best brother anyone could ever ask for. He always looked out for me and watched over me, but he also gave me the most ribbing, good-naturedly, of course, being his "baby" sister as he would call me. He and I had a lot of laughs every time we were together. Family get-togethers will not be the same without his presence. Trip and I would plan all of the menus/meals and he would gladly chip in and help prepare all the food with me. Of course when it came time to clean up the kitchen, he was nowhere to be found! Trip always had a bell he would ring when he would want me to get him a coke or whatever. His favorite line was "while you are up, would you get me a........." It has been so heartwarming to read all of the tributes and to find out how loved he was by his friends and coworkers. Thank you all for the kindness you have shown my family. Michelle
As I said in the words I left for the service, Trip''s picture is next to the definition of friend in the dictionary. I am so sad for his passing, and can barely believe it. He has been my dear friend for a long long time. It is not possible to relate all the fun times, memories and political "discussions" we have shared over the years. Trip has always been there for me, seeing me safely home, making me laugh, and being the epicenter of fun times for lots of his friends. He even was there for me as a groomsman in my wedding. He remembered special days, and the last time we were together it was over a nice dinner in Milwaukee....we laughed, recalled old times and once again as always, he got me safely home to my hotel. Goodbye old friend, I will miss you, and will see you on the other side when I get there...where the Liberals and Conservatives all coexist in harmony! Mrs. Kirsh, my love to you. I am so glad we had our time together last week. My prayers to you and all your family as you travel this sad journey, what a good son you have for always. Marilyn
Dear Kirsh Family, My sincere sympathies to you on the passing of Hugh, I was a Vice President at St Luke''s Hospital and hired Hugh from Brookings, S. Dakota. Later years and minor changes in our organization moved Hugh to another division of the hospital, but I always looked up on him as my associate. I will truly mourn his passing. With condolences Bob Wheeler
I was surprised to hear of Trip''s death. He was such fun to be around in school. He had a way of getting everyone laughing. Like so many from our past, it is hard to keep in contact however it is never hard to keep good thoughts in our minds. I have nothing but good thoughts when it comes to Trip. My deep condolences.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
Michell Sorry to here about your brother.My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Bob Nebl
So Sorry to hear of Hugh''s passing. He sent us a Christmas card every year since he moved back home. He was actually my son''s godfather (Bryce) With deepest sympathy, Joan Colston
My condolences to Hugh''s family. I had the privilege of working with Hugh many times professionally, and since he lived nearby me, I often saw him in the neighborhood or at the stores. He was a nice man with a good spirit. My condolences to his family. He will be missed.
MY CONDOLENCES TO THE KIRSH FAMILY ON THE LOSS OF TRIPP...HE WAS THE BEST- SMART, FUNNY AND ALWAYS A GOOD FRIEND. YOU ARE ALL IN MY THOUGHTS. NANCY WOLLENBURG CLASS OF 1968
I was shocked when Manuel informed me of your passing Hugh. I''m directing this message at you because I know you can hear me. Work wise, you always made everyone in the room feel as if they were your peers ....even though you were the smartest one around. Your ability to have "Fun" while working and still do your job to the best of your ability will always stay with me. Eat all the yogurt covered nuts you can and share them with GOD. You will forever be in my thoughts and prayers Hughbis.
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
