In Mitch’s eloquent words “I have memories not to forget.”
And here’s the thing — he will live on in all of us whose lives were touched by him, just as Kurt lives on in so many of us today. And to the Koennecke family, maybe I was meant to wait until this very moment to share with you this. I loved Kurt. He was a beautiful person and a perfect friend. He is forever in my heart. Thank you for sharing him with us.
Funny, although my Mitch and Kurt were different in many ways they shared some beautiful traits. Both true gentleman. Both with old souls. I really think they would have made great friends.
And so today, I have hope.
With warm regards,
