Walk with me to your mansion and see what I have for you.How sweet that sound must have been. I love and miss you and know one day I will see you again. Til then I will not say good bye but I will say see you later..Love always your little kitty cat

I have many wonderful memories of Curt. My favorite are the many times I would wake up on a Saturday morning to find that, before going hunting with dad, Curt brought donuts for me for breakfast and had left cinnamon candies for me to find! I also remember the time my cat had kittens. Curt was taking care of her while we were out of town and teased me by “threatening” to drown them while we were gone. The mama cat moved the kittens one night and Curt worried himself sick that we would never find them and I would never forgive him! He searched all day and night and finally found them for me! Curt was a very special friend to my dad and our family and he will be missed by everyone. I will be praying for you all.

I wanted to share something with everyone that comes here to read or sign this book for my dad and the family, Anyone who knew my dad knows he loved to joke and make others laugh and right up until almost the end he did the same. When visiting him I would ask “so how did you sleep last night” he would say with my eyes closed, or I would ask “how do you feel today” and he would say with my hands. And in the last few weeks of his life I would visited him like so many days before he was not eating alot, so before I left that day I said dad please eat today, promise me you will eat for me, he looked up at me and said.. Shell,what good will it do you if I eat or not today. Again always the cut-up and he made ME smile & laugh.

Love you always dad, Thank you for so much, And I know you are in a better place and will never ever really leave me,
THANK YOU for making sure I know this.

Uncle Curtis was a man who love to laugh I think about how he act like he was getting his pocket knife to cut our ears off as kids.
When I was older we was a guard at a roller skating ring he take me with my cousin Pete so I got to learn to skate. Uncle Curtis will never be forgot but will live on in our hearts with a smile knowing one day we will laugh again.
