Katie Sebastian
Kurt Schmid
Hi Diane,

My name is Katie Sebastian and I am Kurt Schmid's niece. I want to begin by thanking all you for creating a page for my uncle on

We really enjoyed hearing all of the stories and kind words online, and at the services. Those stories and your post made me realize how little I actually knew about my Uncle Kurt. When I visited my uncle in Washington D.C. he told me he was doing research on how drugs affect the brain. It wasn't until I visited Chicago 2 years ago and took a tour of the HIDTA office that I began to understand exactly what he did for a living. I was shocked and extremely proud, to say the least. I guess that was just Kurt being humble, a trait that a lot of people mentioned at his services.

Afrer the funeral, my cousins and I shared some of the stories we had heard, each of us acknowledging that some key details were, unfortunately, lost in the chaos of those few days. Now, we are hoping to formally collect and document your stories to share Kurt's son, granddaughters, and other surviving loved ones. If you have any stories you are willing to share, we would love to hear them.

Please send any stories and/or photos to my personal email: Please feel free to share my contact information with anyone who may have stories to share.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you,

My Father

I appreciate your post of my beloved Father Luis. I miss him dearly. I pray that he is at peace and that my Mother and siblings miss him oh so much. To date the Criminal/Murderer has not been apprehended. Words are not enough to sum up the devastation my Family has suffered. Again, thank you so much for remembering my Father.
