My deepest condolences to the Riser family for this tremendous loss. May the words found at Isaiah 26:19 bring you comfort in knowing that you will one day see Kurt again. Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning, And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life"
