Kitty I don't know if you remember me. I'm your nephew Ronnie's ex-wife. I wanted to say how sorry I am about the loss of your husband. I know how hard it is losing a loved one, especially around such special time as Christmas. I lost my step-mother Betty Sadler (a neighbor of yours) on the 20th of December. We drove by your place alot admiring your husband's apple trees. Every time we came by my husband would say "Some day I'm going to stop and talk to that man and ask him how he grows such pretty apple trees." Now he'll be growing those pretty apple trees in Heaven. May the Lord wrap you in His arms and comfort you in your time of sorrow.

Dear Kathleen and Mike, I am deeply saddened to learn that Curtis has passed away. I know how hard that it is to give up one so special. I will always have great memories of times spent with your family when we were living across the street from you on Goolsby Street when I was a child. Curtis will definitely be missed by all who knew him. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Donna Sue

Ms Anderson so sorry to learn of Curtis's passing. He was a good friend and very loyal comrade. Was privileged to work with him for so long at the VFW. God Bless you Bill
