Our loving son Quinn McManus Kirsch, age 8, unexpectedly went to heaven to be with God and his Grandpa John early Monday, January 7, 2013. Quinn is preceded in death by his maternal grandfather John Richard Quinn. He is survived by his loving wonderful brothers Jack, Connor, and Ryan, parents Kelly and Kyle of Edina, grandparents Mary and Victor Kirsch and Joyce Quinn, uncle Kevin, great aunt Lil, special buddies Oskar, Anthony, and Joe, many other dear and caring friends, and his beloved Christmas puppy Lucky.
Visitation will be held Wednesday, January 9, 5-8 p.m. at Our Lady of Grace Church (5071 Eden Avenue, Edina), and one hour prior to Mass on Thursday. Mass of Christian Burial on Thursday January 10, 11 a.m. at Our Lady of Grace, reception to follow. Private burial. In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred to the Quinn McManus Kirsch Memorial Trust, Wells Fargo, 5116 Vernon Avenue S., Edina, MN 55436.
We loved him so much and words can't express the pain and grief we are feeling, but we were blessed with him in our lives for 8 wonderful years. Quinn was a kind, gentle boy who everyone befriended, and everyone loved. Although he has left this earth, his spirit will remain with us forever.

Kyle & Kelly,
I was in the Class of '92 a year behind you. While I don't think I knew either of you very well- please know that my heart is aching for the loss of Quinn and the pain and sorrow that you're going through. My wife and I lost our son Luke 11 years ago and we know the heartbreak that you're goign through. Our prayers are with you and if you would like someone to talk to my cellis 507-271-2058.  My wife and I also went to a support group called Compassionate Friends for parents who have lost a child and it was helpful- especially to my wife Marcy.
A German theologian once said,"God cries with us now so that he may laugh with us later" Through God's sacrifice and the Ressurection of Jesus- you'll soon be laughing with Quinn again.
God's peace and grace to you- Steve & Marcy WolfeJohn 16:16 - A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
Revelation 21:4 - And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Kyle & Kelly,
I live in Austin, Texas but I went to St. John's and my good friend Tom Rushin just let me know the very sad news about your son Quinn.  I cannot imagine the pain you have gone through since Monday, and I wanted to express my sincerest sympathies over your loss.  Please know that you will remain in my prayers.
God bless you and your family.

Dear Kirsch Family,
My name is Amy, I am a parent of a 7 year old 
Wayzata Hockey Player named Mace'o
I was at a Regular Scheduled Hockey Practice at Hat Trick this morning. 
Only today was not just any old regular practice.
It became different the moment that I noticed your sons memorial on the wall.
I instantly stopped in my tracks and read his entire plaque.
I am not sure that words can express the instant saddness that came over me,
I was so sad for your incredible loss and then I felt guilty for still having the opportunity to 
walk through those glass doors and see my son on the ice.  I wanted you to know that I never 
went back into the arena  this morning  after seeing this news, instead I sat at the table out in
the front and prayed for your family and for your adorable little boy.  I'm sure you have 
received countless messages and comforting words from friends and strangers , and they 
all must seem like blank pages at times . I can not begin to imagine this loss to your family.
I just wanted you to know that I was deeply affected by this and that I honored your son today 
in the best way I knew how. I waited for my son to meet me in the front and I stopped to 
share the story with him. I could clearly see his eyes beginning  to water as mine felt like they
were out of tears. We had a special moment together as we just stood there in silence for what
felt like a long time. We just looked at his picture and held hands so tight.  I wanted to thank 
you for that moment that I was able to experience and I wanted you to know that the legacy  
of Quinn will not be forgotten in our family. Please know that our most loving thoughts went 
out to you today and our lives, changed profoundly. I am a Christian woman that firmly
believes in living each day with the mindfulness that each and every day and moment is a gift.
I truly hope this message finds you in a better state of peace and understanding. We honor 
you and admire you for your undeniable strength and courage.
With Love,
The Marlins
