Sorry to hear about your kids. My prayers are with you and your family.
Frank Sr, Frank Jr and Scott,
I’m so sorry to hear this terrible news!
I remember your mother very well. She was a very good mother, and it seems a great “co-pilot” for Mr Crews highly successful business, Quality Painting! I recall nothing would stop her from heading to the office on Friday afternoons to ensure “the troops” were paid! Come “hell or high water” she would be there...... because she knew “the boys” worked their tales off, and it was her responsibility to make sure they were taken care of!
I remember as a teen hanging out at their house, and every so often we would need to “grab something” from the basement, it was during those few times I noticed a set of USMC Dress Blues. It’s funny, because I still remember them blues, and often wished I hadn’t been such a chicken shite to ask Frank Sr or Mrs Crews about them! I served in the Marine Corps from 1986 until retiring in 2007 as a GySgt. I too, was married throughout my career to the same wonderful lady as I am today. I also know how special of a lady it takes to be married to a Marine Infantryman, and I wish my wife could of met her. I’m sure they would of gotten along great! They are both “no bs” type ladies, and if they had a problem with you..... you knew it!
I could ramble on forever! Sorry for “the book”! Lol
Please know your in my thoughts and prayers..... every single one of you! I’m sure your she is at her seat in heaven, and waiting in anticipation, to watch all the great things all of her loved ones have left to accomplish! Semper Fidelis
GySgt Eric Gunnar Ulfsax, USMC, Retired
Sorry for your loss Tom and family sending my condolences
