In Loving Memory of Curtis Scott Robbins: June 23, 1964 – April 11, 1995

It has been 18 years since he left us – but he is missed as though it were yesterday.

This is the Eulogy I wrote & delivered at his funeral.

In Loving Memory…

Tribute to my Baby Brother Curtis

 

Everyone here knew Curtis in different ways.

 

Some of us knew him as “the guy who’d give you the shirt off his back”, or share anything he had to make you happy.

We knew him as that “happy-go-lucky”, fun-loving guy, who always seemed to be able to smile and find some way to bring our spirits up if we were down.  He’d go out of his way to assist us financially, and he even on a couple of occasions risked his own life in order to save the lives of his friends, and then carried them to safety.

Some of us knew him as that ‘little-turd’, with his mischievous grin, who could playfully tease the heck out of you, on any given day. Curtis didn’t like to fight or argue, he loved to laugh and love.  He didn’t talk others down, no matter what they had done or said to him, or about him.  Curtis was always a gentleman being courteous and polite to everyone he came to know.  He worked hard, and sometimes played too hard, displaying his ‘no-fear’, ‘let’s just have fun’ attitude, but he’d always let you come along with him in either case.  He was one of the few who actually lived each day to the fullest, as if it were his last.

Curtis loved his family and friends more than he could ever tell us. His actions spoke louder than words for many of us, and he didn’t have to say ‘I love you’.  He did so many funny things to make us laugh, he was truly a gift – a blessing lent to us by God.  He gave us so many beautiful memories.  I am so thankful that I had 30 years to get to know him and love him.  Even though I knew his weaknesses, I am proud to be his big sister and thankful that he allowed me to be so close to him, and I for one, will forever remember his smile.  He touched so many of our lives in so many different ways…

In the words of Boys To Men;

“it’s so hard to say good-bye to yesterday.  How do I say good-bye to what we had?  The good times that made us laugh…  I thought we’d get to see forever, but forever’s gone away.  So I’ll take with me the memories, to be my sunshine after the rain…”

and I’ll rejoice in the fact that he watches over us, and that I’ll see him again one day in Heaven.

And today, as my heart breaks because he’s gone, I thank God for the loan;  for I couldn’t have asked for a better person in my little baby brother Curtis Scott Robbins.
