Dear Precious Roberts Family ~
We pray for you to feel God’s strength in every breath you take and rest well in His everlasting arms of comfort. Be kind & gentle with yourselves as you feel sorrow, express grief and discover strength to transcend and heal your wounds. While we simply cannot imagine the raw emotions of losing a child, we do cradle you in our prayers.

To The Roberts Family,

I was in a state of shock upon hearing that Curry was no longer with us as I'm sure all of you are. I knew Curry throughout High School and never knew him other than the always smiling, always happy, alwayls looking on the bright side of life person he was. Even years ago he was a happy, confident young man that was mindful of everyone's feelings and in turn wanted them to be happy as well. We lost touch over the years but I'm sure he was even a better person than what I remember him to be. I'm so sorry for the family's loss especially, and my prayers and thoughts go out to each and everyone of you. To all of those that came in contact with Curry and could count him as a friend, we are simply lucky to have done so.

My condolences,

Our hearts go out to you during this time of great loss. You are certainly in our prayers as you go through this time of grief. Matt. 5:4 John 14: 1-4 The death of a child, I am told is the most difficult of all grief, so I know the Lord is ministering to each of you as only He can do.

I've known Curry since the 5th grade. We were not "close" friends, but we were friends. It's hard to hear of old classmates passing on. He will be missed.
