Dear Hans family,

It is with heavy hearts that we have learned of Curtis' passing, but know he is in the presence of our Lord and Savior free of the burdens of this earthly life.

May many wonderful memories fill the quiet moments of mourning today and in the months ahead.

Dear cousins Richard and Deborah,

Your father's service was simple, lovely, and comforting. Even though I'm almost a thousand miles away, I felt the Lord's presence here and with you. You all remain in my prayers.

Blessings to you all,

Thanks for having an online service that we could view. It is strange times we are living in right now. I only remember Curtis from when I was a kid. He was much older than I and when me and my parents (Martin and Omega Wimmer)would come visit Fred and Marie. Marie was my dad's sister. I remember many monopoly games at the Hans house, with me getting beat as I was the youngest. I also remember trying to play softball in the back yard. I was walking in from the outfield and looked down and there was a little snake coming out of a hole in the ground. Someone came and killed it with a hoe. It did scare me. I pray for peace for your family.
