The Latest Stuff

Welcome to the Byron and Annie Kirkwood's Internet Home Page. In case you haven't visited with us lately, you may be noticing that we've made a lot of changes and additions. You might want to BOOKMARK our page now before you forget.

First for the personal stuff:

  • My name is Brian L. Kirkwood and I the oldest son of Byron R. Kirkwood. My father passed away on September 20th (2002), only 3 weeks after my Grandfather (Orval Kirkwood) passed away. His service was held at Greenwood Funeral Home in Ft. Worth where he was also buried. He was 56 years old and died suddenly of a pulmonary embolism while in a hospital in Tulsa. My father was a great man and will be deeply missed by all of his family and friends. The family asks for your prayers as we work though these rough times.
  • My (Byron) father, Orval Lee Kirkwood, passed away on August 28th (2002). His service was held at the Southwood Methodist Church in Oak Cliff (Dallas) where he had been an active member for 27 years. He was buried at the Veterans National Cemetery in Dallas. He was in the Navy and a veteran of War World II. He was 76 years old and been ill for almost a year and finally died of acute leukemia.

  • Shirley MacLaine asked Byron and Annie to be on her IE (Internet) radio talk show (taped to aire later). Byron's interview was how to physically prepare for earth changes and emergencies. Shirley's request for Annie was to discuss Mary's messages and particularly the prophesies. Annie asked Mother Mary for an update on the predictions and we have added them to our web page. These are the first new predictions that Annie has allowed to be made public since the release of Mary's Message in 1991. To hear the interviews, you have to join IE Radio.
