Tribute to Mr C

A Letter to Our Friends and Guests

April 1, 2009 by Bon Aire

Dear Friends and Guests,

Our family would like to thank you for the overwhelming response to our father’s recent passing. The generous donations, flowers and notes of condolence were particularly touching at a moment of great difficulty. As you know Dad thought of the Bon-Aire as more than a building made of bricks and mortar. Dad thought of the motel as a place where families could relax in the Florida sun while enjoying the company of other families, often creating life-long friendships.

To honor our Father’s rich and distinguished life, we have redesigned the Bon-Aire website and attempted to incorporate as many pictures as possible of our father with friends and guests. The Bon-Aire Motel will always embody our Father’s wit, charm and personality. He will always be present around the motel and in our hearts and minds. Our family is devoted to continuing the rich history and traditions our Father and Grandfather started on St. Pete Beach in 1953.

We look forward to seeing you again at the Bon-Aire Motel and hope to share some special memories, as well as creating new ones in the years to come.

With love and appreciation,The Curotto Family
