Curt has always been a huge inspiration to me. He taught me so much, and he was easily one of the funniest people to be around. Love you Curt, you will be missed.

Dear Doris
I was so saddened for you, to read of your son, Curt's obituary, and untimely demise, in today's Bulletin. Reading the many touching memories from friends and family, indicates Curt was a very special person.

So many years have passed since our first meeting, and I have wondered where you were and how your life was faring.

Please contact me: frangreenlee@q.com.
There is information I would like to share.

For all that love this precious spirit known to us as "CURT", must also know he was INDEED A SPECIAL and PRECIOUS spirit! He touched the hearts of all, leaving his vibrant smile engraved upon our hearts. His laughter and joy radiated from him to uplift those around him. We shall all cherish and hold dear these memories. We feel blessed to have known and been so lucky as to have been chosen to be in Curt's circle of friends and family.

Sincerest thanks go to the VanEss family and my cousin Jim Fry for bringing Curt to all who shared his friendship and special gift of enrichment of life.
