The database page for Charles Curtis Crow
For my big brother, Curtis. Mom and Dad are gone now, but your passing was my first taste of death. I remember when I turned 18 I thought out loud, Mom sitting nearby; "What if this were all of life allotted to me?" Mom immediately knew that I was talking about your shortened time here on earth.
Dad was sad until the day he died, at losing you. I have all of the old photos, Jamie has the flag that brought you home. I will hold onto my memories of you til the light in my eyes also dims.
