Mr. Curry Haynes was such a blessing to my entire family. He was one of my father's best friends. I feel honored and blessed to have had Curry in my life. I remember my son when he was very young and saw Curry, he would say Mom, "Mr. Curry Haynes is here!" in that excited and awe filled voice of child who thought he was the neatest person in the world, and Curry was that. God Bless the family and let's all celebrate the life of a wonderful Godly man.
