Messages of Condolence:

"Our sincere sympathy to the family of Betty Curtis. Our association with Betty and her late husband Elmer leave us with very pleasant memories. We very much enjoyed their friendship and fellowship at Grace Bible Chapel in San Jose. Betty was so easy to visit with and we enjoyed many meals together both in our home and in Mount Hermon. It is wonderful to think that she is now free from the frailty of old age and with the Lord. We cherish her memory."
- Alan & Rhonda Kember

"We are thankful to have known Betty and Elmer for some years at Grace Bible Chapel and earlier from their ministry at Parkside Bible Chapel. How many people had a meal at their table only the Lord knows (thousands?) Their kindness to others and their example of a godly married couple are not forgotten. We thank God for their impact in our lives. "
- William and Linda foley
