I will miss you Uncle Curt! You were always one of my favorites. You always had a great story or joke to tell. I’m so happy I got to see you last year, while I was visiting the U.S.

Our dear friend, Curt, was such a comfort and joy! We (R and myself loved him so. Never did I want this time to come! The stories of life he left us with were jovial, historic, and wise. Never did you doubt his love of family, friends, and God! May he reunite with all those before him. God bless him and his family. What a treasure you were! Carol Dickson

Curt Judah was our dear friend whom we loved deeply. Although we were separated by the miles we always stayed in touch and tried to get to together when we could. We will miss him so much but he is happy once again in the presence of our Lord Jesus walking hand in hand with his beloved Vicki. As believers we have confidence that one day in heaven there will be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. It's in that wonderful place that we shall always be with our Lord.
