  1. Mrs Crawford has been a part of my life ever since I can remember. She will always be in my heart and fond memories. My condolences to her very large, beautiful family.

  2. Evelyn was the finest person we ever knew. She was our Mother, whom we shared with her family; she was a Grandmother to our children and she was our Friend. She was the kindest most compassionate person I’ve ever known. She always made you feel good about yourself; she did not judge; she was honest,protective, positive, funny and loving. To say that we will miss her is an understatement. I will miss her calls and her greeting’Hi ya Liz’ and I will miss her joy of life. We loved her very much.
