    Miriam, Kathy, Dwight, Pat, Dallas, and Roxie, am so sorry that we could not be with all of you today. Have been remembering many good times visiting the farm while growing up. Having just had lunch with Miriam, Dwight and Pat last Sat. brought back many good memories. God bless the Curts family as well as all of the Morton clan. Prayers from Colorado.

    Pray for Dallas & Family Emmett was a super Christian Brother. We shared prayers & Bible study on many early Monday mornings for years. May God Bless you plus we take comfort in knowing where he and Julia are together now.

    I’m sorry we won’t be able to make the trip for services but know you will be in our thoughts and prayers this week and in the coming months. I have great memories the Curts farm from our summer visits to Indiana and always loved that swing–still have the section of that chain; remembering it now makes me smile. I also enjoyed the visits Mom and I had with Uncle Emmett at the Manor in recent years on our visits to Indiana. Those times were special too. He will be missed but I know he is at peace. Much love to all!
