It's Kyle's dad, Steve.
I've belonged to an Internet forum for over a decade, and know that Internet friends are real too.
Kyle got his start on the Kaw Triples forum, and I was proud as hell to see how thoughtful and articulate his writing was there, and how much he wanted to help.
I can assure you, Kyle was not a helpful person around the house, so it was great to see that he had those traits, he just chose to use them somewhere else.
It was easy to watch him mature with you guys, and many of you really were like his big brothers. With so many things for a parent to worry about, a kid talking cars is a godsend.
I would be honored to meet any of you who can attend his funeral. I will be a mess and have lots to do, but please introduce yourself to me and tell me you knew Kyle from the forum.
I know, as soon as I figured that out I said dammit, fukin Kyle was right.
