I just heard today about Crock. I'm lost for words. I have so many fond memories. We talked about getting together to play cards or just visit and with life so busy it just didn't happen. You always had a smile and some wise crack when you would see me. ❤ My thoughts and prayers to you all! Charlene, Rick, Larry, Terry, Richard and families!
Love you Crock, you're going to be missed by many!! I will hold the fond memories close to my heart!!
