My heartfelt condolences to Cheryl and the entire Karge family. Kurt was a great friend and teammate and will be missed dearly by all that knew him. I'm so thankful that I was able to reconnect with Kurt in the last few years as he seemed to be enjoying his life in the Lone Star State. Rest in peace #66.
