Toni and Cheryl…I’m so sorry about your dad. Thinking of you and the rest of the family.

Condolence from James and Lilian Pruett on December 13th, 2010 12:00 am

David has come to mind many times since 1964: he supervised construction of the house we still live in, and we purchased a condominium he built. He was friendly with a sense of humor, always eager to be of service,and had complete professional integrity. We honor his memory and send our deep sympathy to all his family.

Condolence from Mike May on December 13th, 2010 12:00 am

David Curl was the uncle every nephew should have. He possessed a good heart and keen judgement that guided a lot of key decisions in my life.

I am saddened by his loss to his family, his community and for those special times I needed him through-out my life.

My only hope is that I can be that person to someone else in the family as he was to me.

God be with us all as we deal with this loss and give us strength and comfort.

Dear Toni and Cheryle,

Thinking of you today and days ahead.

With love,

Doloris, Our thoughts and prayers are with you. David was a good man and always had a smile on his face. That was a sign of him being a child of God. He is now at rest and not suffering any longer. We love you all~~~~~~The Family of James and Pearl Olive
