    Dear Kurt,

    This was the last time we saw each other, and I took this picture. As always, you were very generous with me, motivating me to open the field of the mind, brain and education in Latin America, as well as opening your arms to share your wealth of knowledge.


    It was such a pleasure to learn, first hand, from someone I admired so deeply.

    Rest in peace, that I can ensure you that your legacy will remain forever.
