Louise, Barbara and family. Wow! Words leave me at this time. What a wonderful man, friend and customer. I will miss his teasing me all the time, those bib over alls and those John Deer hats he always wore. The funny thing about Curt was when he wanted coffee at the Freezer and it wasn't served to him quickly enough, he would call the Freezer phone and speak to the waitress reminding her he wanted refills. May God bless you at this sad time and keep his memory dear to your heart and he will always be near you.
With Love, and friendship,

Brian & Jeannie Williams

My heart goes out to you over the loss of Curtis. He has left a legacy of love and memories that will never be forgotten… Hold tight to those memories…Lean on family and friends for support…And look to God’s Word, the Bible, for comfort and strength. 1Peter 5:7 encourages; “…throw all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you.” My deepest condolences. Galatians 1:3; John 5:21, 28-29; Matthew 5:5.

I am sorry for you loss. Please accept my sympathy. May you find comfort in God's promise at Isaiah 25:8 "He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. And the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for Jehovah himself has spoken [it]."

though out my child hood i can say Curt was one of my favorite foster dads he was so sweet and thought me how farm work was done we baled hay and cut wood and dad would show us that farm work could be fun but yet hard work i can also remember dad and us kids was cutting wood getting ready for the winter and we got to this tree and there was a baby squirrel and never knew that there was flying ones at that well the tree was already down so dad took it home with us and it became one of our pets,i am going to miss seeing him at the freezer and running into him in the stores and he never forgot who i was ,i am going to miss him but i do know he went to heaven because the kindness he had and how big of a heart he had by taking in kids that was taken away from there blood families in my heart he will always be my dad .
