The one year anniversary.  I have no idea what brought me here, but I am so glad the Holy Spirit guided me in.  I want you to know I think of you often. Having never been a Caps fan, every time I see them on the news, I think of Curtis and your family.  I  hope you are doing well and your memories are helping you to laugh and live again.  Prayers for you today for a continued celebration of a great man's life.  He will always be remembered.

Five months today..... Here's a Joke of the Day:

Golf on Christmas... 
Four old timers were playing their weekly game of golf, and one remarked how for Christmas this year he'd love to wake up on Christmas morning, roll out of bed and without an argument go directly to the golf course, meet his buddies and play a round.
His buddies all chimed in and said, "Let's do it! We'll make it a priority, figure out a way and meet here early on Christmas morning."
Months later, that special morning arrives, and there they are on the links. The first guy says, "Boy, this game cost me a fortune! I bought my wife such a diamond ring that she can't take her eyes off it."
Number 2 guy says, "I spent a ton too. My wife is at home planning the cruise I gave her. She was up to her eyeballs in brochures."
Number 3 guy says " Well, my wife is at home admiring her new car, reading the manual."
They all turn to the last guy in the group and he is staring at them like they have lost their minds. "I can't believe you all went to such expense for this golf game. I patted my wife on the butt and said, 'Well babe, is it sex or golf?' and she said, 'Take your sweater, looks like it might be windy out there'."

I was so sadden to learn of your son's passing!  I wish I could say that I do not know your pain...I lost my only son/child 4 moths ago...so I do know your pain.  Today I pray that God will give you Chris and your family the peace that passing all understanding!  We know not the hour, day, or why God calls our kids, family, or friends home to be with him again but we have to trust and believe that God knows best!  God Speed!

Dear Curtis,

I just want you to know what an impact you have made on my life since we started talking & supporting each other. You always had a positive thing to say to me on a negative day and promised during my darkest hour the dawn would be approaching.

I miss our conversations everyday. I wish I could hear you tonight but i know you're watching me from above...You were the ONE person who I knew how i felt & understood me & could make me laugh when i needed to. and I hope throughout I gave you strength and some smiles along your battle. You are the toughest, bravest man I've been so proudly to have been introduced to. I will continue to miss and think of you and fight for you everyday. Rest now sweetly......

P.s I'm praying for all of you, Janet, Chris & Cindy.

I'm feeling profound regret that i was not able to attend Curtis' funeral mass due to a virus that had its way with my family.  I'm a 'new' catholic and since that Easter vigil some years back, i've been saying weekly prayers for those who have lost a child.  Naturally but unfortunately my list continues to grow. If by our prayers, your load could be lightened only briefly, then i (and maybe we) have a reason to rejoice.

A rabbi, priest, and a preacher meet every Monday in a coffee shop to talk things over about their spiritual life. 

One day, the priest makes a bet with the other guys that he could convert a bear in the woods over to his religion. The others nod and say "Yeah, I'll bet we could do it quicker than you could!" 

So they all agree that the next time they meet, they'll share stories about how they were able to convert a bear.
A little something to lighten your load as you lay Curtis to rest today.  After meeting Father Michael yesterday, I particularly like how the priest gets the best of it in this joke: 

They all end up in the hospital, but the priest is in the best shape of all of them. They decide to meet in the rabbi's room. The priest has his arm in a sling and says, "Yeah, it was tough at first, but I was able to dash it with some holy water. The next thing I know, it started saying Hail Mary. He's coming to mass this Sunday."

The other two clergymen nod in approval, and the preacher goes next. The preacher is in pretty bad shape. He's in a wheel chair, and he has a concussion, a broken leg, and a broken arm. He says "Well, when I finally happened upon it, I wrestled that thing to the ground and started beating its head with a Bible. So he lunges at me and we tumble down this hill into the river where I dunked him seven times. Finally, he came to the faith. He'll be coming to church next Sunday."

Both men turn to the rabbi to hear his story. The rabbi looks like he got the worst of it. He's in a body cast and there's no way he's getting out of bed any time soon. He looks at both men and says "Well, I probably should've started with something different than circumcision...."
Janet, Chris and Cindy, these jokes have seen you and Curtis through his illness.  I hope they've given you a chuckle when you've needed it.  Our journey on these pages is at an end as we begin our lives without Curtis.  God speed and strength today as you lay him to rest.

Today's joke is courtesy of Curtis's Pop Pop:

No English Dictionary has been able to explain the difference between that two words “complete” and

“finished” in a way thats so easy to understand :

When you marry the right one , you are complete !
When you marry the wrong one, you are finished !
And when the right one catches you with the  wrong one,

You are

Completely Finished!
And a bonus from his Great Aunt (because I ran out of clean Mike Barbi jokes);

Why did Sarah Palin kill all of her neighbor's chickens?

Because they kept coming into her yard and saying, "Barack, Barack, Barack."

Peace and comfort to you all on this very difficult day.

To The Family,


We know there's really no words that we can express, to give you great comfort, except to let you know that you are all in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers.  We didn't really get to know Curtis, but if he was anything like his Mom and Dad, then we know that he was a caring, loving person, that we all would be proud to call family.  We can't know the reasons things happen the way they do, but we know that God has a plan, and He love's us.  Curtis is with Him now, and we know that we will see Curtis again someday.  We can hold on to that!  I think they have great hockey games in heaven.   We love you all, Theresa, Joe & Family

As this begins a difficult week for us all, a little levity to send Curtis on his way:

During a dinner party, the hosts’ two little children entered the dinning room totally nude and walked slowly around the table. The parents were so embarrassed that they pretended nothing was happening and kept he conversation going. The guests cooperated and also continued as if nothing extraordinary was happening.
After going all the way around the room, the children left, and there was a moment of silence at the table, during which one child was heard to say, “You see, it is vanishing cream!”

Dear Cindy, Chris and Janet;
I wish you comfort and peace on this day of hope and resurrection. 
A man dies and goes to heaven when Peter meets him at the Pearly Gates. Peter says, “You need 1000 points to make it into heaven. You tell me all of the good things you’ve done, and I give you a certain number of points for each item. When you reach 1000 points, you get in.”

“Okay,” the man says, “I was happily married to the same woman for fifty years and never cheated on her, not even in my mind.”

“That’s wonderful,” says Peter, “that’s worth two points!”

“Two points?” he says. “Well, I attended church all my life and gave my ten percent tithe faithfully.”

“Terrific!” says Peter. “That’s definitely worth a point.”

“One point? My goodness! Well, what about this: I started a soup kitchen in my city and worked in a shelter for the homeless?”

“Fantastic, that’s good for two more points,” he says.

“TWO POINTS!” the man cries. “At this rate the only way I can get into heaven is by the grace of God!”

“Now that’s what we’re looking for! Come on in!”

We all know that Curtis earned more than 1000 points.
And, yes, a Mike Barbi bonus, because we all know Curtis loved a chuckle....


Two guys were in a bar, and they were both watching the television when the news came on. It showed a guy on a bridge who was about to jump, obviously suicidal. "I'll bet you $10 he'll jump," said the first guy. "Bet you $10 he won't," said the second guy.


Then, the guy on the television closed his eyes and threw himself off the bridge. The second guy hands the first guy the money.


"I can't take your money," said the first guy. "I cheated you. The same story was on the five o'clock news." "No, no. Take it," said the second guy. "I saw the five o'clock news too. I just didn't think the guy was dumb enough to jump again!"

On Christmas Eve 2011 you gave me an unforgettable lesson in solving a Rubik's Cube and we timed your speed at just under 2 minutes. As I rose to leave after our last visit last week you reached up, grabbed me in a Curtis hug and said, "Aunt Val, I'm gonna miss you so much. Don't worry. I'll meet you at the gate." Wow, Curtis . . . giving, giving, giving . . . Love you with all my heart, little bro, and I can't wait to hug you at the gate.

Dear Cindy, Chris and Janet;
I wish you comfort and peace on this day of hope and resurrection. 
A man dies and goes to heaven when Peter meets him at the Pearly Gates. Peter says, “You need 1000 points to make it into heaven. You tell me all of the good things you’ve done, and I give you a certain number of points for each item. When you reach 1000 points, you get in.”

“Okay,” the man says, “I was happily married to the same woman for fifty years and never cheated on her, not even in my mind.”

“That’s wonderful,” says Peter, “that’s worth two points!”

“Two points?” he says. “Well, I attended church all my life and gave my ten percent tithe faithfully.”

“One point? My goodness! Well, what about this: I started a soup kitchen in my city and worked in a shelter for the homeless?”

“Fantastic, that’s good for two more points,” he says.

“TWO POINTS!” the man cries. “At this rate the only way I can get into heaven is by the grace of God!”

“Now that’s what we’re looking for! Come on in!”

We all know that Curtis earned more than 1000 points.
And, yes, a Mike Barbi bonus, because we all know Curtis loved a chuckle....


Two guys were in a bar, and they were both watching the television when the news came on. It showed a guy on a bridge who was about to jump, obviously suicidal. "I'll bet you $10 he'll jump," said the first guy. "Bet you $10 he won't," said the second guy.


Then, the guy on the television closed his eyes and threw himself off the bridge. The second guy hands the first guy the money.


"I can't take your money," said the first guy. "I cheated you. The same story was on the five o'clock news." "No, no. Take it," said the second guy. "I saw the five o'clock news too. I just didn't think the guy was dumb enough to jump again!"
