I so sad for you and the White Marsh community that Curtis has passed. He was so helpful and a shoulder to lean on when Jimmy and I were living with Miss Vira. He was busy with his own father at that time but never failed to visit with us. He is missed.
Peace to you and your children. You all are special to me and mine.
Much love

I am so sorry to hear of Curtis' passing. When I worked with him at Lowe's, he always had a smile. Curtis taught me so much about my job and the company even though I was not his direct report. Mrs. Reba and family, please know that you all are in my prayers. May God bless and keep you all wrapped in his arms during this time.

Dearest Tonya, and family,

I KNOW your Grief, it Hurts so bad inside, you right now think you just can't go on, BUT this how your Dad, Husband, Uncle, Cousin, or Brother would want you to be???
NOPE, Of Course NOT!!! He would want you to GO ON and LIVE , and BEEEEEE HAPPY!!!
I believe death is one of the worse stings in life, but Mr. Batten is now much better off, NO Pain, No weakness, and SMILING as he is with Jesus now, he wants YOU Happy, not to dwell on bad things such as death, but to LIVE, and show your LIGHT to others.
I am PRAYING for the Comfort ONLY CHRIST can give in this time of Hurting and for the Pains you all feel to be relieved in your Hearts.
God Bless you!!!
