Howard and Carolyn mentored me in my days of being a Vicar. He was an inspiration of how I wanted to grow in service to the Lord. Thought my ensuing ministry he was a source of friendship and admiration. I feel very blessed to have the entire Crumb family in my life. I pray that the Lord of the Ascension will lift up your hearts in comfort and surround you with our love! Love, Ron

From the Lyon's family it was a blessing knowing and seeing you from time to to time. Then a friendly jester as we passed during service., You will be missed but not forgotten.
