They say Cousins are your first “Best” friends. I found that to be true with all my cousins but Curt was special. Even though I was 3 years younger, he took me under his wing. He would drive a great distance to pick me up so I could hide in his trunk to get into the Drive In movie and we would laugh about that like we had just pulled a big heist. He was instrumental in teaching me about cars and building engines, we would row a boat all over Long Lake in Michigan catching fish, we rode our motorcycles to Long Lake, through Kendalville, and all the little towns we could find. If we got into trouble, he always jumped up to take the blame. He was alway full of ideas, most good, some not so much now that I’m older but hey, that’s how you learn.! We were cousins...but he was my best friend growing up. God Speed and love ya Curt, my friend.
