Dear Jan, We were so saddened to learn of Curtis's passing when Linda called us. The two of you were married the same length of time that Benny and I have been married. Time goes by so quickly, doesn't it? I am so glad that you have Chris and his family to be near you, especially at this time! Please take care of yourself and just let Linda Kay know if there is anything that we can do to help you get through this new journey of your life! Love, Sharon and Benny
