It was a pleasure meeting Curly and having the chance to get to know him in the spring of this year. He made an important impact on my life and he will be remembered. Sorry to hear of his passing but he is now at peace.

Someone Is Missing Let this be a loving reminder that someone is missing today. Someone our hearts still hold on to. As we travel along life's way. Someone who made life so special, for all those who won't be forgotten. But cherished from year to year. And now as we pause to remember. Let us all fondly recall, how dearly each of us loved him. And oh..how he loved us all. Pepe, We miss you so much. Love, Lucas & Marcia (Cici) Nims
