Interment: Private. Arrangements by DW Rhodes, NOLA. Please visit to sign the guestbook.

and from that guestbook, check out this message from Coco's daughter:

The outpouring of love and support from the global community is heartwarming, and has been comforting.

We have created a Memorial Love Board for my father on Spiritland as a place to tell stories, share pictures and videos, and especially to add some humor, because anyone that knew Curtis knew that he was funny.

It is my wish to create a museum to honor New Orleans musicians in his memory.

Although he did love flowers, I believe he would want donations made to support the family of Kenny Holladay and the New Orleans Musicians Clinic.

With Love,
~ Heather Nygren
