Greater man I’ve never known. I was the daughter he no longer had. He shared so much of his life with me. He taught me life lessons and I’ll forever be touched by his love. He taught me how to cook amazing. Will always remember our fish frys and Paul smoking on the grill. His 2 best buds Annie..the puppy…& Booboo the cat also know as Knothead. He was such a kind & happy man. He loved his family so. Ms Addie was his love. He was Paul’s best buddy in life..and I know his heart is breaking. I know he is in Heaven looking at us with a smile as he always had….saying pappy…it’s what he called my husband..David.you are not getting that 99.99 when he’d win 100.00 on the lottery ticket. Till we meet again💔

Memories of Mr. Crawford will always be in our mind. He was a friend, neighbor, and sometimes a father to the kids that lived next to him. I pray for Bud and Danny and all of your family. God bless him and his family. Bubba Woodruff.

How blessed we’ve been to be included in this family. We weren’t family by blood but Pop never seemed to care. He treated me and my kids like we were his grands not step grands. My deepest condolences to the rest of the family. He was a wonderful man and will be greatly missed.

I hadn’t known Mr. Lloyd long but he reminded me of my pawpaw and I was truly broken when he passed away. I look over every day and think of him and his smile. It was a pleasure knowing you for the short time I did. God speed and may I see you again one day.
