    Dear Jerry, Richard, and all the family,
    Very sorry to hear about Curtis, my condolences to you. I haven’t seen any of you for many years but have fond memories of our District 3 days and AGHS. It is tough to lose a sibling, I should know, I have lost all three of mine, but I hope you find peace and comfort in your memories and know you will meet him again.
