To the family,
I'm so very sorry for your loss. He was a wonderful man and a very valued member of our community.
Mr. Curtis was our school bus driver for many years, on what was then Route 5, Athens. He was always fair to others and polite. I rode the bus with his sons and I want them to know that I appreciate the fine example their dad was to us all.
As a little kid when I rode the bus, my memories of him are faded and few, but we were never once in a wreck and he drove us through the worst of weather... sometimes my mom would drive us to school but much of my day was spent on Bus #6, to and from school for many years.
I pray for your peace and well-being.

Mr. Curtis was a very nice man at Brownsboro where my kids were students.
