I can remember when Linda and Curtis started dating. They were always a happy couple through the years. Where Linda was quiet Curtis was always cutting up. Heaven just got a great addition. Rest In Peace Curtis!!

He was one of my favorite cousins! There are soo many memories flooding my mind right now! I loved the 88 tournaments we were in together! I loved babysitting Heather for him & Linda at the bowling alley! I remember the 1st time he brought Linda around to introduce her to the family, I knew he was head over heels about her then!
