I am sad that I lost just a good friend in the Lord, Curley help me learn more about playing the Bass that I did before I met him, He also taught me a lot about singing and music in general, I felt very close to Bro. Curley, We could talk for hours and not run out of things to talk about, I made a comment in Church yesterday that God takes the best and Curley was the best in my book, I also got to thinking about Bro. Curley and Bro. Brian Chambers last night and thought that heaven must have needed more singers in the heavenly Choir, Because both could sing very well....Rest In Peace Bro. Curley, I also made a comment yesterday that Curley has finally got his healing he will not have to suffer any more.
