    Kip and my son were good friends, and they hung out quite a lot together when they were younger. I always very much enjoyed when Kip and Anthony were hanging out and doing things together. Kip was always so polite and nice, and at the same time quick with some good-natured wit. I am very saddened to hear the news about Kip. My prayers and thoughts, as well as those of our entire family, are with Kip and his family and friends. God Bless.

    I wish I had seen more of you over the last few years. We’ll all miss you, Kip.

    I am deeply saddened by the news of Kip’s passing. He grew up with my son and my son’s other neighborhood friends. He was a polite young man and a good friend to my son. I have received calls from some of the other neighborhood, high school friends of Kip expressing their utmost sadness as well. He was a loved young man. May he rest in peace with his mother.

    My very deepest condolences to the family and friends of Kip. I was so moved by this thoughtful obituary that I felt compelled to send you a message. While I did not know Kip, I’m feeling sad that this beautiful young man is no longer with you. His love of music, art (movies), and animals puts him in a category that others can only hope to achieve. It sounds like he was truly special in his commitment to others. He certainly had much more to offer humankind with his love and humor. Throughout my life I have encountered people who seem to fit the description of Kip. They have brought me such joy because of their unique personalities. I wish I had known Kip. Sending you hugs in this time of loss. Peace.

    My heart goes out to Kips family. While I did not know them well, I did get to know Kip quite well in middle school and high school. We played in band together, ate lots of Taco Bell together and shared many laughs with friends at the lunch table. I remember him as a relatively quiet, funny person who was always great to have as a friend. I will miss him.
