Love while you can....

Hello Blogland.  My heart is heavy this morning. Sweet Curtis passed from this world into eternity at 5 am this morning. I'd like to share what his dear wife Ronette said:

At 5am Curtis went on to be with The Lord! Last night I was singing to him and he opened his eyes, then shut them for the final time! He died the perfect death! He experienced your love before he passed and he celebrated the holidays with family and friends! Thank you all for making his life so full and memorable! Please do not say that he lost his battle to cancer because cancer lost its battle t...o Curtis... Cancer cannot get the credit for the miracles that took place over the last few months. Families have been restored, souls have been saved and marriages healed.... Those are results of someone who won.... I love you all! I will be off my phone for awhile and not available for visits quite yet! Information on the services will be forthcoming!
He left this world hearing the voice of his earthly angel Ronette and woke to hearing choirs of angels in heaven. No more pain, no more suffering.
He leaves a legacy of love behind him. Anyone who knew Curtis LOVED Curtis. He always had a ready smile and a word of encouragement. The world, and my life, are truly a better for him being in it. He will be missed greatly by all who knew and loved him.

I'm going to be taking a bit of a blogging break until next week. My daughter's foot surgery went well yesterday and I'll be spending some time with her this week.

Take a moment and call someone and tell them you love them... while you can.

I'm sorry to hear about Curtis, Tamera but it must be some relief to know that his tragically short life was filled with love.
Good news about your daughter.
Take care and see you very soon. xxx

I'm sorry to hear about your loss but after reading what his wife said it's hard to be sad. What a lovely person she sounds like and I'm sure Curtis will be remembered in so many people hearts. I'm glad your daughters surgery went well too.
Sending you lots of love

Oh. It's hard to say goodbye, isn't it. I feel a heaviness when I look at these beautiful pictures, having just said goodbye to my mother-in-law a few weeks ago. I think about her for a moment, and then have to focus on something else. Life keeps on going and all the people who have transitioned are still with us, in our minds and hearts. Please give my love to those around you and keep a huge hug for yourself. XXOO

Darling ... so sad for your loss. So many are thinking of you, all your family and Ronette especially. So hard for all behind, but we must believe it all continues, and for Curtis, without the pain in a new reality.

A link to cheer you even a little;

See you on your return ... and for now, with so much love,
