Connie I was saddened to hear of Curts passing.. I will never forget our times together, when my dad Curt and I would go fishing during the summer.. Just like when we would go to your guys house and watch football when you lived in Dillon.. You have another angel watching over you now, amd Curt’s out of his pain.. God Bless You Connie
