I was so saddened to hear of Kurt's passing. He was such a great friend and co-worker. I will always cherish the times we spent together. I will always remember the support Kurt gave me in Richmond and Robinson. Ann, you are in my prayers and thoughts. RIP Kurt.

We were sadden to hear of Kurt's passing. Hold on to the wonderful memories of your 35 years together and let them help you through the difficult days ahead. We made a memorial contribution in Kurt's name to the Shriners Hospital, what a wonderful idea. Take care!
