I met Curtis when I was 15 years old. We got together when I was 20, and were
inseparable ever since. He took to being
a father immediately. He had never been
around children before Landon, but he was a natural. The moment I fell in love with him and
thought he was the one, was when Landon had been very sick and Curtis stayed up
all night helping me wash sheets and give hugs and medicine. There was just something about the way he
took care of Landon that night that showed me how much he loved us. January 10,
2014, Curtis died suddenly in a car accident. When I got the call, they
wouldn’t tell me anything except that I needed to get to the hospital because there
had been an accident. Never did I expect
them to sit me down in a tiny waiting room and tell me that Curtis had passed
away. That was the most awful moment in
my life. Shortly after, I started taking
Landon to Lost & Found. We love it.
They have helped both of us realize that we are not the only ones who
have gone through something like this.
It’s wonderful having peopled to talk to who understand what we are
going through, even when everyone else we know has moved on. They have helped tremendously, giving us hope
and allowing us to express our grief.
