Kurt was my cousin, next door neighbor when growing up, and a friend. When I think of Kurt, a bearded smiling face is the image. I think of the time when Craig and I went camping, in a tent, by the Yellow Breaches to catch the first day of trout season. Craig and I weren’t old enough to be on our own quite yet, so Kurt’s mom made him take us with him. That’s at least the way I remember it. Good memories. Thoughts and prayers to all family and friends.
