Wanda, I am sorry for the loss of Curt. You two were fortunate to have so many years together. I will keep you and your family in my prayers and thoughts. May fond memories and God's presence lift you up and carry you through this time of grief. I remember coming to your home as a child with my parents. My mother was Marie Wilhite-Willard. She passed away in December 1995 at age 71. Curt and her were only 11 days different in age. Mom was born March 18, 1924. Roy, my dad, passed away in February 2000 at age 81. (I know you grew up across the road from the Wilhites on Strawberry Plains Pike. Of the nine kids that my grandparents, C. L. and Jeanne Wilhite, had only one is still alive - Mary Nell [Hancock]. She still lives at home should you like to call her and share old memories. Her phone number is 933-5983. She still lives at 417 Andrew Johnson Highway, Strawberry Plains 37871. )

I am sorry for your loss. My dad (J B Stanley) worked at Robertshaw with Curt. He really thought alot of Curt. I guess they are chatting in heaven about shipping all those thermostats. Prayers to each of you.
