Curly was of the elite, a true friend and confidant. Someone who would take time to call and say hello. He would help out or lend a hand anytime or anyway he could. The best days of my life were spent with Curly. He taught me so much in so many ways. Curly had a soft spot for children, always acknowledging them with kind words or high fives and baby fives, skittles or lollipops. He truly did have a heart of gold. I always looked forward to seeing him. There was always a story or a joke to be heard. I can see his smile, hear his laughter and feel the joy he had around family and friends. Simple pleasures like working in the garage, playing cards or country cruisin are some of the things i miss most. I have a lifetime of memories that come and go in my mind. I wish they were yesterday and the future was of the same kind. My heartache still remains and that will never change. I am so grateful to have known you. I miss you so much. You are the Best of the best. Coolest of the cool. Toughest of the tough. I will never forget you. I Love You Dad.
