Roberta and family, My heart breaks for you even though we know Curtis is in Heaven now. My memory is years ago when you came for measurements and Curtis and LJ made friends. They had sticks playing war and were beating my shrubs. The leaves grew back and LJ always considered Curtis a friend. I loved seeing him in the car with the radio turned up and dancing like no one was watching. I know you are grieving but be sure to hang on to the beautiful memories of Curtis. He was a remarkable person and may he RIP.
