Condolence & Memory Journal

As a youngster I would watch Mr. Douglas's films, and if it was a Western, or a historical role that he played I enjoyed is quality acting. And as I grew up, I learned that his life was also a Quality - Act, I was glad not to hear of scandal, divorce, or other issue that plague Hollywood about him. He showed me a strength, a calm and a confidence that should be the values of all humans. Thank you Mr. Douglas, You were My Hero.

Dear Mike and Catherine, it is with deep condolences that I mourn the loss of your father (and in-law). Though I met him only once, he seemed to be a greater than life person. God bless & keep him.

Kirk wrote a wonderful autobiography. I recommend reading it.
His exceptional portrayal of a WW1 French Officer in the movie Paths of Glory is especially remembered. Kirk was also outstanding in The Bad & the Beautiful.
Burt Lancaster & Kirk made a terrific duo together. Goodbye Kirk.

I am writing this, to describe that we have lost one of the best actor the world has ever seen or ever will see again. Kirk Douglas is my best actor ever period. The reason for my writing "is" because in my mind he is still alive. He will never ever be forgotten. His intensity of acting in any movie will be highly recognized. Please give my sincere apologies to his family. I was extremely and deeply moved by his death. As I said in my mind he is still alive.

It's God's Will And We Must Comply
By: Charles G. Turner, Sr.

Life is uncertain,
But as sure as we are born one day we must die
Sometimes we sit and wonder why
The fact is it's God's will and we must comply.

Throughout our lives we live through happiness and sadness
And many toils and strife
And when our earthly life is over we enter into our eternal life

Whenever a loved one or friend makes their earthly depart
It is natural for it to bring hurt and sorrow to our heart
And to deal with our loss we grieve, mourn, and cry
In all essence we must remember this is God's will
And we all must comply

For those of us that are left behind
We must cherish the special memories
And keep them all in mind
Just remember it is not for
us to question why we have to die
It's God's will and we all have to comply

May God Bless and comfort all of you

My family and I send our sincere Condolences to the precious family and friends of the Legend Kirk Douglas. Over the years my family and I have admired his hard work, ethics and many talents. When I was a child my Italian immigrant parents were proud that they lived near Kirk Douglas's sisters and that they talked with them at the neighbourhood bagel shop and in their tailor and formalwear shop on New Scotland Avenue in Albany N.Y. My hard working parents would remind us that Kirk Douglas grew up in neighbouring Amsterdam N.Y. and as a result of hard work and diligence he accomplished his dream of becoming a world known actor and entertainer . You are in our thoughts and prayers . God Bless your family !

We never really lose those who are dear to us.
Their familiar voices whisper to us when we are alone.

And though at first we are saddened by their departure, in time our sorrow fades and is replaced by vivid memories of happy times spent together.
The realization that those memories will live on within us is comforting and allows us to find peace.

To his loving Wife, adoring Sons and his precious Grandchildren...all my thoughts and prayers go out all, on this most difficult time, in their lives.
Such an actor, from what was the 'golden age' of Hollywood.

I relished and loved every movie he ever made. Taking each role and making them so real and with such conviction.
My 3 favorites are THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, LUST FOR LIFE(for which he studied every bit of VanGogh) and SPARTACUS(for which he funded, using his own money, making sure to get Trumbo and Kubric. And no stunt double....all Kirk).
Truly one of the greatest. And a true Humanitarian as well.

Not like my parents, who, of course were older than me, but I grew up watching Kirk Douglas, on the silver screen, later in life, and I came to admire his acting talents. His personal life, and how many times he got married, or had children, I figured was his own business, I just liked him, for himself, and his acting. His sons took to acting, especially Michael, and practically all his sons looked liked him! He will be hallowed and honored, fo4 his long acting career, memorable films, and his children will keep the acing name going. Kirk Douglas, his acting name, not his real name he was born with, but will be remembered by, will go down as a mans man, and a great actor, in the history of Hollywood. He will be terribly missed, but never forgotten!

Where does one begin to describe the magic, the kindness, the talents, the looks and most of all the LOVE, that that your father, " KIRK", gave to you all of you, Michael, Catherine and all of the family. You were all so blessed,to have had the love that has been a driving force implanted in you from your father!!!!! He was a man, that not only was such an extrodinary talent, even when he was stricken with is his illness's he still wanted to do and he did do what he could , to make LIFE, better for others and for all of you whom he loved with his entire beautiful heart. This was so apparent, and Michael , you are the most shining example, of your father's love. We all cried after what you wrote today.He was a "MENSCH" and he will never be forgotten by me or my family. 2- 6- 2020

Kirk Douglas was a wonderful, caring and loving person. One of the best actors in Hollywood and around the World. He loved his family and they love him dearly. An actor and icon that epitomized all that is good about the film industry.

Posted by Thomas and Camille Centola Jr - Ponte Vedra Beach, FL   February 05, 2020

To the Douglas Family, Kirk represented the best of America. Not only by 'playing' the iconic Hollywood roles over the past century but by 'being' the best American that we needed- standing up against McCarthyism and Reagan's favorites list, Kirk fought for freedom, artistic and political, when it was not convenient or popular. He was a true American icon and his family must be proud of him. Give God a shove for us Kirk, he needs a reminder of American greatness now more than ever. Godspeed.

The first time I saw Kirk Douglas on the silver screen was as Spartacus and in the Vikings. It was where I got the idea top have a Viking funeral if I died. I felt sorry for his character in In Harms Way, he was in several westerns, but he was great in the role of the Captain of the USS Nimitz in the movie Final Countdown! Good bye Kirk, Hollywood is dead, the Hollywood I knew growing up in the 60's and 70's. Shalom.
