Curtis, to many was a hero. Together with his wife, they served as pastors, then missionaries preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ. Many will rise up and call them blessed.

Curtis Meyers became a part of my life when I purchased a house from him and his wife. We talked a bit as the years past and now I want to offer my condolences to his family.
