    Curt and Jenny were very special friends during my time in Frankfort. Curt and I worked together at the Wilderness Camper factory. I returned to my home town of Monticello Kentucky and we continued to stay friends. I felt I needed to be close to Curt during this funeral. I must say, I felt very close to Curt as I visited Jenny and many of the family at there home. You all made me feel like family. GOD Bless
