Curtis & Kathy’s Story

Site created on November 21, 2017

Over the last few weeks our life journey has taken a challenging turn. First Kathy had two heart attacks, then this past week I was diagnosed with some form of bone cancer due to a crippling pain in my right shoulder. Beginning next week as Kathy continues heart rehab I began tests to determine the type and extant of cancer in my body. We are holding on to Psalm 73:26

Journal entry by Curtis Atneosen

“This project started 10 years ago in Lynden when I recorded Dad and Kari playing “Birthday of a King” a Christmas service regular and “Rock of Ages” (often played at funerals). The other tunes were recorded in 2012 at our home in Woodinville when Dad was 74 years old. At that age his saxophone technique/sustain were impressive on a wind instrument!

Dad spent 8 years in the Army band. His father, Clarence Atneosen, played sax in the St Paul Musicians’ Union. On these recordings, Dad plays the same alto sax that Clarence originally purchased/played in the late 1940’s. Our family has a long history of music, and specifically saxophone, which I attempted to capture.”
