Family of Curt Lindell You do not know me but I knew Curt. I too work in the insurance claims business. I worked with Curt at National Indemnity (NICO)in fact my office was right beside Curt's. Curt had a great memory of claims in handled. In fact just last week I was telling another claims man about Curt and his memory of old claims. Also, Curt and I went to the same barber so Bob would let me know what Curt was doing like winters in Arizona. I'm sure there many other men and women in the claims business who have similar stories about Curt. I am sorry to hear of the passing of Curt. He always spoke fondly of his family. May his memories help you through this difficult time.
