The team at Providence Critical Care unit in Portland, Ore. provided personal comfort and support to our family, helping us get through such a difficult time.

For many years, Jim was the editor of The Chronicle, a national quarterly national news letter for the Curtis/s Family Society, producing 24 pages of beautiful and interesting articles of Curtis / Curtiss stories. It was my privilege to work with him at several annual reunions of the Curtis/s Family Society, and as treasurer to enable Society payment of the News Letter. His always cheerful and friendly person, as well as his great News Letter will be greatly missed. Thank you Jim for all that and more.

I didn't know Jim personally, but I'm a member of the Curtis/s Family Society so have read his writings. He will be missed by the society.

To Pauline and the family,
It is with deep heart-felt sadness that just today I learned of Jim's untimely passing. Both Ginny and I send our sincere condolences to the Bull family. Jim was the editor of the Curtis Family Society's quarterly newsletter for many years and I really enjoyed working with him. Ginny and I feel fortunate to have met Jim at the Curtis reunion in Connecticut in 2014 and Jim arrange for the 2015 reunion in The Dalles. We had a great time together. He will be greatly missed by all his Curtis-Curtiss "cousins" and the board and members of the Curtis/s Family Society. We pray that he is at peace. God bless. George Curtis

Polly --
Just last year, Jim encouraged me in an email to write about my FS experiences when I told him that I was going to highlight men who encouraged me and facilitated my FS career, starting of course with my daddy. Jim was the third man I intended to highlight and now, too late for him to know, I would like you to know how much I admired him. He helped my time at Cape Perpetua VC in a positive and encouraging way, always reminding me to laugh because nothing is as bad as it seems. He helped me figure out how to act and react, how to know what response was needed and how to serve the public. Thank you so much for sharing him with us on the Waldport RD and for all his and your help in those early years. Pam Devereaux Wilson
