My favorite memories are of Cam and I sitting on your bed swapping stories and catching you and mema up on our lives. I really wish we would have done it more often. I would also love to have one of those big warm hugs again! I feel so blessed to be a Curry and to be a part of this loving family that you created. We already miss you so much and nothing will ever feel the same without you. Love you pepa!

Hey Jimmy,

Our conversations were always fairly short and to the point, I never got to know you in the traditional family way, but I could see how your influence on the family and those around you spoke worlds to who you are. You always had a very calm and warming presence about you, I never felt like anything less than part of the family since Paige first brought me around.
Even when you and Joyce were arguing about the cable remote, you still kept an even demeanor about yourself.
Apart from Paige, Joyce was the first member of the Curry household that I really bonded with, and I wish I could have know the man ,that kept that awesome lady happy for 65 years, better. There will be a noticeable gap in world without you.

Lov you and miss ya,

Your legacy is so strong that it still lives past your death. You where a man that was always there to the point that it’s impossible to think you are gone. “It’s pepa he will be fine “ are my own words and will ring in my head for a long time. I wouldn’t have what I have if it wasn’t for you. You gave us a home and a place that people who weren’t even family never wanted to leave.You and mema started something that will carry on for generations to come just by showing your love for each other day in and day out. I sit here and wonder why I haven’t felt grief, wonder if there is something wrong or I’m not right. But maybe it’s because grief is not the answer. I believe celebration for the life of an amazing man who touched lives is the appropriate response. So Jimmy Curry I will celebrate you and everything you have done. You are my pepa and will always be my pepa! Every time I turn on my saw I will think about you. Every time I watch a Steven seagal movie i will think about you. You will never be forgotten and will always be loved. Rest In Peace and know we have your wife in good hands.

Mr. Curry,
What a loving, caring family you have raised. I only knew you for a short time, but realized right away what a deep love you and mrs Curry shared. May God hold you in his loving embrace and may you dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

I will miss hearing you say “I love you” at the end of every phone conversation. Your absence leaves a Huge void.

I will miss you asking about the weather while I was traveling out of town. You always wanted to be sure I was ok.

I will miss you asking if Beth was traveling with me, and you always were comforted knowing I wasn’t alone.

I will miss your thoughtfulness, and your caring heart, always were loving to me and Beth.

I will miss the stories that you told me 100’s of times over the years, I would give anything to hear one of them right now.

I will miss hearing your stories about the grandkids and your love and faithfulness of always being available to pick them up or take them places.

I miss you, I have not yet been able to reset my brain so it knows that you have left us for awhile, I look forward to the day when I will see you again.

Pepa, Thank you for helping shape my husband into the man he is today. He loves wood work because of you. Thank you for showing him how you loved Mema. He knows how to love me unconditionally because of that. Thank you for sharing so many of your wonderful qualities with your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Thank you for sharing those wonderful qualities with me. We will love you and miss you.

To this day, your reaction to my tattoos is still my absolute favorite.
I came into yall's bedroom, and over to Mema's side of the bed to show her my newly swollen and colorful forearm. You slyly leaned over from your side till you could see, and without any hesitation at all, you let out, "Well good night! You're making me hurt!" ,which caused us all to laugh
It's one of my favorite memories of you because for me, it says so much. The strange concept didn't bother you, or that I had a tattoo even. You instead found a way to relate with honest humor. You have never once judged me, or said anything in any type of negative tone when it comes to the person I am and how I present myself. You have always shown me love, acceptance, kindness and patience. You've always shown you were proud of me, and everyone else as well. Your support and love has done so much for all of us, and I am so happy that I got to call you my Pepa. I love you so much, and I know we'll see you again.

Pepa, I miss you very much. You and Daddy were the very first men in my life that I always knew I would never ever have to be afraid of. The family feels so much smaller now, and I think it will feel that way for a long time. Less than 6 weeks ago you were picking up Chase from school, and looking forward to picking up Charlie as well when August rolls around. In my whole life I cannot recall you every saying one cross word about anyone. You taught us so much, but what you taught me most was patience, family always comes first, and listening can be so much more impressive and useful than speaking. If we had to describe you in one word I think all of us would agree that word would be selfless. Your whole life was about doing for others instead of yourself, and I will try to be more like you every day for as long as I live. And I will do my best to pass on what you taught us to my own children. You will never be forgotten. You will never be out of our thoughts. You will live on in us and in all the family that has yet to come. Until we can embrace you again in Paradise, please know that we are sending you love and will always be grateful to you, our Pepa.

Love you,

Oh Pepa. First off, you and mema have always been my favorite Curry’s (don’t tell anyone else I said that). I joined the family a little later than everyone else, but it didn’t take long for me to feel as part of your own. You have such a kind, and loving aura that neither of us will ever be able to put into words.

I love that the last memory that I have of you is you playing “pretend football” with Zeke. Even in your pain, you showed him all of the love. So glad that you were able to meet him, but saddened by the fact that you will have to watch him grow from afar, in heaven.

For as long as we live, we will keep your memory alive. Please watch over us, and don’t you worry about Mema....we will all pitch in and give her all of the love that you showed her on a daily basis.

Love and miss you , always. ❤️
