Dear Kurt, Our family will miss you greatly, but we are happy that you get to be with your dad now. We have wonderful memories of you, Aaron and your mom, spending time together for birthdays and other family fun times. You and your dad may be gone from this earth, but you both will always live on within our hearts forever. I am grateful that you no longer are suffering and are at peace now. I will love you always. Aunt Lana

Kurt, you were my very first boyfriend, and to this day, I have never met a kinder, more gentle soul than you. Sometimes I think your soul was a little too fragile for this world. You were a superbly talented musician, and good friend to myself and many others. I will miss our conversations, and I know Brian will miss you more than he has ever missed another human being. I hope you are at peace, and are somewhere playing drums and being happy again.

The Christmas Eve Raleigh gatherings were some great memories. Still wandering how we all fit in Grandma And Grandpas tiny house with our big family and all that food.

Whenever I think of Kurt, the first thing I picture in my mind is that sweet, shy smile that he has had ever since he was a baby. I will cherish the image of that sweet smile always. Rhonda Turner

I remember when my cousin Kurt formed No Exit. He sent me a copy of their first cassette, yes I am that old. I used beg for an autographed picture I could keep for when he got famous.
