Sherrel made a rocking horse for me when I was a young boy. Many days I raced that horse and herded cows on it. I remember him always having smile on his face. Very fond memories. God bless Sherrel Curtis and I pray his family find comfort in knowing he's in God's arms.

Mr. C took the time to provide opportunities for me to make memories as a young boy,with his son James, that I will continue to cherish all of my life. I am so blessed for that and that God, in His great care and love for us, placed is just a couple houses away from the Curtis family when we moved to Dallas. Mr. C was a good man! Paul Lefebvre

Sherrel was a friend and idol of mine when I was in high school. I went to church with him and he was such a good example for me. On Sunday afternoons we would play football. It was Sherrel's job to protect the quarterback. Boy did he do a great job! It was like trying to run through a brick wall to get by him. I always wanted him on my side. God bless your family and we will all miss you my freind.

The Curtis family was instrumental in getting us acclimated to Texas. We moved from Nevada to attend college and seminary, and without their help, we surely would have had more difficulties in navigating all our challenges. They were such a blessing in so many ways, and we call it a privilege to be considered friends. Howard was a source of strength, and he will surely be missed. Alan and Karen Lefebvre
