Miss you everyday brother…. There came a time where I have had no choice but to accept the fact that you’re gone forever and we won’t see you again in this life…. But the pain of that loss never goes away. Still find myself tearing up to memories with you because we can’t make anymore and having the wildest dreams of seeing you again and just hugging you crying because I don’t want to let you go. You were one of my best friends and it was also best that you were my bro. Forever loved and missed…

My sweet baby boy.......
  I miss texting you that. You never complained about me holding your hand and hugging on you all the time. You just soaked it up. I miss you so much, I cant even express it. I dont even know what else to say. I will see you again my love.

My sweet baby boy, sometimes I forget you’re gone. Once I realize it my heart aches like a pain in my chest so deep. You were the life of party. I miss having fun with you doing nothing together ♥️

I see you in every minute of every day in my mind! We’re not the same with you missing from our lives.                             MY HEART HURTS

Well here it is almost a year after we lost our Kurtis and as I knew a void was left in our family and our hearts kurtis will never be forgotten and has made me hope to be next with the unbearable loss we've already suffered of course I think about the loss my brother John and sister Patti have been going through as unimaginable I love you all so much❤❣️

Dearest Kurtis, we miss you so much. Can’t believe it’s been the first year without you and time wouldn’t wait up for us to heal. Everyday we think of you and are reminded of you in some way. We always go to the cemetery to visit you and decorate for all the seasons and holidays that have come and passed without you. Nothing has been the same without you… you were so full of life and fun and the new memories we make are so sadly dull these days without your vibrancy. Why do we have to go on forever like this? It’s as though we knew this would happen, and you tried your best to prepare us for you being gone from this world, but nothing compares or prepared us for how we truly feel without you here. We will celebrate you and mourn you for this year anniversary coming up…please visit with us and be close in laughter and love. We Love and miss you always dearest little brother and wonderful uncle. Forever our Angel in the sunshine ☀️

Kurt,
I am so happy I got to meet you and share all of the moments we did. You were something so special to not only me but everyone around you. You were positive, caring, supportive, and willing to give all of your love to every person you came across. I’m glad you lived your life doing everything you wanted and you have always been so inspiring with your sense of style. I’ve always said you could pull anything off! I miss you Kurtis.. so much.. but I know you’re on to your new beautiful journey. I’ll see you soon, I love you.

kurtangle, kurley
my first friend in high school we eventually grew apart i’ll forever be thankful for everything we learned from each other I know your laughing at me up there being so bothered by your death. you were so different from everyone else I always admired that. I hope you can see all the love your getting down here. every time Nirvana comes on I think of the summer you put that CD in my car and that’s all we listened to because you hated the radio and my car didn’t have aux, remember replaying Polly all the time because of the way it started lol. so many laughs and cries with you kurtis I don’t know the man you became but the man you were and i’m glad I met you.

I will miss our trips to Starbucks and frys, watching TBN, your silliness,you standing up for me when Wyatt was bratty, forcing protein shakes on you...... but most of all your smile ♥️ Your hugs ♥️ Your love ♥️ This is going to be tough but we will see you again my love. ♥️

Kurtis was such a special person, like no one I have ever met. He wasn’t afraid to be 100% himself, his long hair, painted nails, and tattoos prove it. I still can’t wrap my mind around what has happened to my buddy. I miss waking up to him asleep on my couch, I miss our drunken moments, YouTube jam sessions, and our silly sayings. “Swatimsayin?” It still doesn’t feel real, and I don’t think it ever will, but I’m glad he lived freely. He did whatever his heart desired, and instead of stressing about what came next, he went with the flow and stayed positive. I always admired that about him. It brings me some peace to know he lived a fun life doing exactly what he wanted to be doing. But damn buddy we miss the hell out of you, shit aint the same. Love you Kurtis.

Your energy will never die. Even tho your body is not here with us, your energy will always be in everybody

kurtis had the most beautiful soul and even when I was going through my darkest moments and started pushing people away kurtis always managed to check in on me and ask me how my day was or what was wrong because he could tell when something was off. I didn’t see kurtis and jack for a long time because I was in active addiction and I pushed the only family I had away and the day before they passed kurtis messaged me and asked if him and jack could stop by and it made me smile because I missed them so much. We sat in my backyard and shared laughs and memories that I will forever hold dear to my heart. I was able to apologize for annoying kurtis and being rude and acting distant and that beautiful man smiled and forgave me, I was able to hug him goodbye. I love you kurtis more then you will ever know you are the brightest light, you shared a piece of you when you showed me your music and I’ll forever hear your voice and I’ll forever vision you dancing. You are one of a kind I love you Kurt<3

You will always be a light in my heart. Kurtis was a ray of light in this world. His infectious smile would always make anyones day better. I have so many memories of growing up together as I know all of our cousins do. A bond that we all share that many don’t get to experience. I will always remember you as little Kurtis, the biggest Momma’s boy who wouldn’t even pour his own bowl of cereal. You were special and your life was cut way too short. We will miss you beyond words and we will love you always. Until we meet again. ❤️

Sweet Kurtis, you were my first boyfriend. You were in 6th grade & I was in 8th LOL. (I got so much crap for this but I didn’t care) & i’ll forever be grateful that you were apart of my life and that I gave you a chance...haha ❤️ You had the sweetest soul & you cared so, so deeply. You not only loved me, but you also loved my sister & for that I will be forever grateful. You were like a brother to her, always made sure she was okay. We hadn’t talked for so long but in 2016 I told my sister “I wanna reach out to Kurtis” & we talked for a couple months then.. obviously it didn’t work out but I will always cherish & keep the time I had with you close to my heart. I loved you, no matter what. You were so crazy & so outgoing but like nobody I had ever met before. I will miss you forever & I hope to see you again one day ❤️ Rest in Peace sweet boy. 

MY BOY

Shared by John Hession on March 10, 2021
The day he entered my world he was the biggest blessing! I’ve referred to him as my twin because he had so many traits like me but in the end he was better than me. I am so proud of the man he became even with his up’s and downs he learned and became stronger. I will live the rest of my life to make him proud that he as a son taught me strength.Although it’s so hard at the loss of my boy in his honor I will continue to push through the pain to be here for whoever needs me be it friends or family!!!! As I’d like to think that’s where he got that Quality from! And for those who loved him when you feel the warmth of the sun on your face on a cold day and the sunshine coming through dark clouds take it to your heart that is our kourtesy saying he’s there with us all ♥️  I love you my sunshine Forev
