    Dear Diane, Donis, Bret and Kara,
    I am saddened to hear of Kurt’s passing.

    I have fond memories working for Kurt nearly 30 years ago. I remember he let me use one of your family cars and I ended up dropping the transmission. When I told him what happened he didn’t get the least bit upset…he simply said that’s what happens when you take corners on two wheels!

    I will forever remember Kurt’s kindness and soft spoken demeanor.

    Sincerely,
    Joel Andersen
