I am sorry for Kurt's passing. We went to Pershing together and he was the first boy to pass me a note telling me he liked me. I still have that piece of paper in my scrapbook from Kurt. It said " I like you a little bit". Think it was in 6th grade.
Kurt you will be forever in our hearts!

Wow! This was a shock, I am deeply saddened. I met Kurt in Kindergarden or First Grade (too many years ago to remember)... at Pershing Elementry - I remember him playing at recess, he was a sweet boy. Pretty much speachless, and that is something for me.

I remember Kurt well. This is a shock to me. I know that all his family and friends miss him. I don't even know what to say.

Oh, my! Mary, Ronnie and Sonie~ my dear friends! My hugs, condolences and prayers go out to you: when I'm back in St Joe for this upcoming reunion, can we get together? Mary and I worked @ ANB for years together!

My dear Sonie and I hung out in college when we were both single and we have fond memories! Well, may God continue to console you in this great loss. Kurt was always so genuinely kind to me and never was he without a true dialogue, we didn't have stupid or superficial conersations, no fluff, and always available to me.

You will be missed, but never forgotten.

So sad to hear Kurt is gone.  He was one of my first friends at Pershing.  He taught me how to water ski behind his john boat on the Missouri River.  One of the great adventures of my life was taking that little boat all the way up to Nebraska at 12, felt like Huck Finn.  I remember seeing him at our 20th reunion and had hope to spend some time with him.  I remember he asked me to ditch the reunion and go back to the river with him but I didn't and we never connected again.  Will miss him.
