    Dear Kathy and Family,
    We were both saddened to the core to hear of Curtis’ passing. Jimmy thought the world of him and enjoyed working with Curtis for years as electricians and then at Geneva Hall where Curtis worked in the bar and us in the admissions office. He was as good as gold and worked so hard as most electricians do. We pray peace over you and your family. Please reach out to us if there is ever any thing we can do for you. God Bless You today and always.
    Jimmy and Cyndi Sykora – Robinson, Texas

  5. Kathy, so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family today and in the days ahead.
