He's Finally Home

James Howard Curtis

1919 - 2009

He was such a sweet and gentle man who always seemed to have a big smile on his face. We will miss that smile and his kind words. He won the hearts of those he met.

When my family and I arrived at the airport in December 1991, he was there to greet us and take us to our hotel. I will never forget him. We love all of our church family, but once in a while there are those who stand out as exceptional -- he was exceptional!

His funeral will be Thursday, May 7, 2:00 p.m. Please remember Hubs, and all of us who will be taking part in the memorial services, in your prayers. Hubs will be bringing the message and they have asked me to sing two songs. I know with God's unfailing strength, we can do it.

His little wife, who now walks with a walker, already feels the loneliness. Her sweetheart was the kind that leaves a BIG hole when gone. Although she may be physically frail, she's a mighty warrior and is strong in the Lord.

At times like this, it makes me want to strive even more to be a woman of substance for my God.
