Dear Cure Family, It is with a heavy heart that I am sending this message of condolence. You all are a beautiful family. I know Elmo’s memory will be with you forever. Love and prayers to you all!
Tom and Joyce Moneta, June 28, 2022 George & I saw the passing of Elmo in the Dallas morning News today. We are so sorry & share in your loss of a dear and loving man. George & Liz Jackson (from Canyon Creek Days) Liz Connelly Jackson, June 28, 2022 I know this is a time of great loss for you and your family. May you hold close your memories and time together. Fondly, Karmen Karmen Blount, June 27, 2022 Trey, Susan, Madelyn, Evan and the rest of the Cure Family; My sincere condolences to each of you as you walk through the passing of Mr. Elmo. With knowing Trey and Susan since we were kids, I wish I had the opportunity to meet and know him. There are not many families that can work together, play together and remain always encouraging to each other, and others but in the Cure family I have seen it as Trey and Susan have raised and instilled in their children. I am sure Mr. Elmo will always feel the same. I am luck to be one of the recipients of his work. God Bless and love , Steph Stephany Williams, June 27, 2022 Dear friend Marion, I was so sorry to read about Elmo's passing in yesterday's paper. I had heard that he was not doing well, but was still surprised to find his obituary. He had a full and happy life, much enhanced by having you as his wife. I noticed that he was a 32nd degree Mason for fifty years. My dad had the same honor during his lifetime. Obtaining that degree is a lot of hard work requiring dedication and love of the work. As the days go forward you will be in my thoughts, as you have off and on in the past. I wish for you and your children and family all the best in the coming years and I will pray for your strength and courage during this difficult time. I have missed having you in my life these last many years and hope for a reunion in the not-to-distant future. Fondly, 
Jan SamuelsD, June 27, 2022 So sorry to hear of Elmo’s passing. We always had great reunions of the AHS athletes at his & Marian’s lake house. I know he’s in a better place and thinking about and praying for the family. Gerald Galbraith , June 26, 2022 I was so saddened to read of Elmo's passing. He was such a big part of my life and the Craig families lives for so many years. He was not only someone I could count on for financial advice but also a good friend. He was so proud of his family and I really enjoyed hearing about all of their accomplishments. He will truly be missed. Mike Fairchild, June 26, 2022
