The Dallas Morning News, where Kinslow had been a reporter, editor and computer systems administrator, wrote:
Earlier this week, Mr. Kinslow received a banner signed by many of the students and teachers at LBJ Elementary School in Grand Prairie, where he had worked for seven years, said his brother, Roy Kinslow of Dallas.
"On the banner it said, 'We Love You Mr. Kinslow,'... which made him feel good," his brother said.
Mr. Kinslow found his calling to journalism at Texas A&M University, where he intended to study aeronautical engineering, his brother said. Roy Kinslow urged his brother to study liberal arts, and he discovered his passion for journalism, which he would practice the rest of his life.
