It was a fun meeting, and it was good to see some of the second (and third) year folks -- Michelle, Heather, and Peg. Not that it wasn't good to see Will and E-Ching, but they are old hat -- in the most comfortable of ways, that is.

I sent a sympathy card to Kurt's widow with these sentiments:
I was so sorry to hear of Kurt's passing. I enjoyed seeing the pictures of his life at the visitation; thank you for making them available.
I liked Kurt. He was a personable professional, and it is, in part, to his credit that I am pursuing my Master of Science Degree in Technical Communication at NCSU. I entered the program shortly after a department meeting in which he talked about having completed the program himself.
Up until that point, I'd never heard of it, and was so excited about it that I submitted my application within days, and was accepted into the program in the Spring of 2004 semester. I'm about halfway done now. I know I'll continue to think about him as I pursue my degree, and certainly upon my graduation.
Please accept my deepest condolences, and I hope it helps in some small way to know the part Kurt played in my life, and that I thought he was a fine man.
