I miss you Kurtland. I think of you often.
The tribute below from Dr. Echemendia is so beautifully worded. And it's how I am sure everyone felt about Kurt.
Every so often there is that resident who by their natural presence alone inspires you to be a better doctor, a better mentor, a better parent, and a better person. Kurtland, with your infectious smile and gentle nature, you were that resident. Thank you for touching our lives. We are all better for it.
With love from your Jacobi family
Dr. Suzanne Echemendia
I didn't know Kurt but have read about his passing with distress. From what I read, he seemed like the most exemplary of men: kind, smart, loyal, fun, giving, cultured, and, wordly. This planet needs more like him. My condolences.
My deepest condolences to the Ma family.
