Kurt, you and your family has always been a big part of my childhood memories. I am so happy that I was able to spend those last few days,visiting with you. After not seeing you for 10 years or more,then to run into you,Tracy & Jeff at the Dollar General,was ,in my eyes, The good Lords way,of giving me the opportunity to visit with you and reminisce about the good old days,when we were kids... Thank you for making me feel at home at your place,funny how we just picked up where we left off...like we never lost contact. And, Thank you Jesus for allowing me the precious time with him. I would also like to say to Jeff and Rhonda, My heart goes out to you two, I cant imagine the pain in your hearts. I hope soon,the two of you will find comfort in the fact,that Kurt is no longer tied down with his cumbersome body,full of sickness. He now walks with the good Lord,and is in the best company anyone can be in,plus, He's with his mother now... Baby boy done finally found his way home. God Bless everyone of you,in your time of grief. I will always be here for you two...never forget that. Keep Kurt alive in your hearts,in your conversations and such. He will visit you in your dreams..cherish them... For that's all we have now,share them his loved ones,to help fill the void that they feel in their hearts. And..most importantly... Always remember your brother for the wonderful,loving,and character he was,Kurt could always make me not smile, but laugh! Love you Kurt! Hopefully I'll see you on the other side...Bring your momma with ya! I loved her too!

Psalm 23:4 - Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

As God had separated us from the past to find our way in life and to our savior Jesus Christ I hope and pray that someday we all will see Kurt again. May Gods love fill your hearts during this time.

I wish to offer my most heartfelt condolence during this time, i know it is always difficult to have such a loss, i as you know had not had much contact with Kurt, but he was and always will be, one of the best friends a man can ever hope for.

Kurt, we never were blood relatives, but in my heart, you were and are always, family, my cousin-I will always remember you as a quiet, but sweet little boy coming out to our house in Antioch with you mom and my Uncle Clarence. I will always have fond memories of our young and wild days-running the town, living fast, and doin what we did. I will always miss the friend I had in our last years, the talks we had, the problems we saw thru. So glad you found God, and that you are finally at peace, so grateful that I will see you again in heaven. My heart goes out to my dear friend Tracy, you know I love you both. And my prayers for all of you-Uncle Clarence (he loved you); Jeff, you were so very important in his life; Rhonda, he loved you well too. Prayers for peace and comfort to you all, and my love.

Kurt:
We lived, laughed, fought our enemies and sometimes one another. Your laughing outlook on life made me smile also.

I am looking forward to seeing you again in a better place, where all the pain of this life isn''t even remembered.
Rest in peace. Prayers are with family.
