May you rest in peace Kurt, my dear cousin. I still can't believe you are gone, or you could say, Kurt has left the building. I think you would get a big kick out of that, I know you liked Elvis. I can imagine you jamming with Elvis, your Dad, the angels and so many other loved ones up in Heaven. Will never forget you and will always miss you and love you.
