  • To my dear Cousin and childhood close friend. We spent a lot of time together and certainly gave our parents our own share of their gray hair. Can’t believe you are not going to be there for our next get together as you always were. I love you and will miss you, but also am happy knowing we will have an entirely different get together on another day.
    RIP my friend.

  • Kurt and I were stationed together in Berlin Germany from ’87 to ’92. Hell of a friend and co-worker. We had some amazing adventures in and out of work. I’ll always remember his passion for the work we did. I’ll als0 always remember the many ski trips we took – those were some special times.
