    Our thoughts are with you, family and friends as you go through this difficult time, but also as you celebrate the short but meaningful life Curran shared with everyone he met.

    Although we had but a few years getting to know Curran, he touched us in a special way as we watched an awkward young boy begin to develop into a bright and handsome young man.

    One of our fondest memories of Curran is New Years 2008 as we sang karaoke and banged pots. A dear friend to Cassie he embraced the silliness of the evening and shared with our family traditions.

    He will be truly missed by the Hamilton’s, he was a true friend of Cassie’s and we always asked for updates on what Curran was up to . . . we sadly will miss hearing of Currans activities, aspirations and successes.

    “Unable are the loved to die. For love is immortality.” ~Emily Dickinson

    Our sympathy, thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Distant friends,
    The Hamilton’s
