On Wednesday, Kirk posted this about his brother’s death on Instagram: “January 2018 I lost my mother & now today January 1st 2019 I lost my oldest brother Keith Frost,” the reality star captioned a series of old family photos.
“My heart hasn’t had a chance to heal from my mom & now this,” he continued. “I don’t even know what to say man, I love you & thank you for being that big brother who looked out for all your brothers me, Kevin & Poncho you took on that roll & made sure you did all you could for us growing up.”
Kirk said he had spoken to his brother the day before. He also acknowledged Keith’s will to fight.
