I won't be able to be there as ur body is laid to rest. But i want u to hear my prayers as I thank the lord you are home. Kurt was the type of guy u either got or you didnt. You were either with him or against him. He, just like each of us had faults. But he had enough charter to claim them and enough courage to continue to grow. Even at his hardest points. Im not saying we were best friends. But he knew in the end we.were friends. And I'll continue to.cherish the memories and the moments I was blessed with. Fly high brother man. Love u.

Betty, Valerie and family,
My heart breaks in the loss of your precious Kurt..
My first remembrance of Kurt was seeing him come to church with his Grandmother and sing praises and worship Jesus..I know he's with Jesus now with his Grandfather Jim..
My prayers are with you and I love you dearly..
