  1. CandleImageI will miss you, “my friend”. We were friends since High School. You graduated and left for the Army 2 years ahead of me. You were always close to me in my heart over the many passing years as I was to you, obviously. I say obviously because it was you that found and got in touch with me first. You and your family saved my life when you did. I was not in a very good place and having someone look me up and travel the distance to see me in person after so many years rejuvenated my spirit. You and your family has always made me feel at home since. I will miss you Curt, my friend.
