I remember moving to Law St. when I was 8 years old and met Curt
and the rest of the Everett family. I remember being entranced when I heard he served in the military. Later when I heard he served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam I looked upon him as an American Hero. As a Vietnam Vet myself I know the hardships he must have endured. My condolences to Lamar, Yvette, Dell and the whole Everett family.

Mr. Curt has been my hero since I was a little girl. He and Miss Dorothy showered me with love and affection for the entire times they lived. I am so very grateful to have had them in my life. Although I can't go visit Mr. Curt anymore, now I get to talk with him as I talk with Miss Dorothy now - all the time. Thank you for everything and love you dearly, Mr. Curt. Love, Abi
