I still have a Miami shirt he got for my son when he was 2 and he is 31 years old now! Such good memories of such a wonderful man. My thought’s and prayer’s are with you all at this time.

    I was devastated to just learn yesterday of the passing of my beloved first-cousin, Curtis. I was his only first-cousin. Sincere condolences to Jim and family, Bob, Rick and the grandchildren and great grandchildren. I had talked by phone to Curt several times within the last year and thought he was in good health, Jim, unfortunately, I have been unable to find any contact information for you. Please call or e-mail me. I had no brothers or sisters, and Curtis and his brothers were my only first cousins. Curtis was always so kind and caring to me. I was 6 years younger than him. I loved him dearly and sorry to be finding out two months after his death. My husband, Bob, and I last saw him when my Uncle Paul passed away. hope to be able to make contact with my other relatives. I live at Oklahoma Methodist Manor in Tulsa, OK.
