Memories Timeline


  1. Our sincere sympathy in your loss. We knew Mr. Crowe through our fathers, who had both been members of the Bricklayers Union.

  2. I guess the thing I remember most about Harry is the way he loved to tease. He really had a knack for it and would bait Mama as often as he could! Loved the twinkle in his eye and the wink he would give me before he would start in! Love you, Harry.

  3. I will surely miss Grandpa Harry. He was a symbol of strength and what a man should be. He worked hard and studied hard. He read more books about ancient history than anyone I know. He had the best manners, always tipping his hat when a lady walked by. People don't do that anymore. I will miss him terribly.

  4. Grandpa was a wise, gentle, and just man. He told me once that he would be here -"… until the good Lord decides to take me." He is home and I will always miss him.
