I was saddened to hear the news of Mrs. Crouch's passing. A lady who from the first time I met her treated me as if I was an established friend. Having been an extended family member, and knowing the devoted love her family had for her, as she did for each of them, I cannot imagine the pain of their loss, however I do know that they may rest assured in Heaven's gain. For as anyone who had the pleasure of her hospitality will attest she made every simple visit a warm occasion via the welcome kindness that was a given courtesy of her persona. Her bearing was graceful and her countenance was always aglow, but most important of all was her Christ-like spirit. To borrow a colloquialism of Jeanne's 'greatest generation' she was a peach who will be missed. Most appreciative of the Love of Jesus she always bespoke, Greg Buchholz
