I finally came back to TX from SD where the funeral was. Many have said that they have never been at a funeral where there was so much laughter! That may sound strange to many but when you know the destination on the one who has passed & you knew anything of his personality, then you would understand the laughter part. He loved humor & certainly enjoyed seeing others laugh. There of course were times of tears & seriousness as well, as he took his calling to reach souls for Jesus seriously & used both laughter & tears when telling the Gospel story.

We were all amazed at the number of people who came & from so many hours away. Especially when the weather wasn't good. After the funeral, we were totally snowed in for 48 hours. Greg missed his flight, Grayson & family made theirs (I29 closed after they got to airport town) & Grady & family missed their first one but made a later one.

I am now at Greg's house, perhaps going to other sons etc. the next few weeks & trusting Jesus to lead me where He wants me. Being without my mate is certainly not easy. Maybe it's harder because we were together 24/7 for 44 1/2 hrs.

Thanks much for all your prayers. Our (my) e-mail is:


  1. Dear Linda,
    It was such an honor to be in Sisseton to celebrate Curt's life. We were all so touched by the beautiful services. I can attest to the many moments of laughter and tears. I know that it must be very difficult for you to face each day without the love of your life next to you. This will be a time when there is only one set of footprints in the sand, as Jesus carries you. Please know that we will be praying for you as you make decisions for your future. We look forward to hearing your updates when you have time. Love and hugs - Lisa Riley (Pat)
    P.S. Thank you for taking time to sign my guest book on caringbridge. Your love and support means so much to me.

  2. Linda,
    Know that we love you and are praying for you.
