Kurt: Your memory will live on with all the "kids" we grew up with in the "ole" neighborhood. The sandlot baseball games, the fireworks and your indomitable spirit was so important to us all! We all owe you so much! God Bless you for your service to this great country! I will see you again on the other side of the veil buddy! Rudolph W, Barich Sr.

Love lives on forever...
Love lives on forever
in each memory
and thought
Of the special ones
who meant so much
and the happiness
they brought.

Love lives on forever-
it will never fade away-
For, in our hearts,
our loved ones
are with us everyday.

May this poem bring you and your family the peace and comfort that it has continued to give me after the passing of my grandpa. You will always remain in my thoughts for the bravery you portrayed in fighting for our country
