  1. Hello Crawson Family I want to say that I am deeply sorry for your loss and would like to share a scripture with the family. It is found at Acts 24:15 which says, “15 And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Here we see that God, whose name is Jehovah is going to bring our dead loved ones back to life. Many people find it comforting to know that they will be able to see their loved ones again. I hope this message is a source of encouragement for the family during this difficult time.
