I am deeply saddened by the news of Cretia's passing. I worked with Cretia at Aetna in Reading and we had some fun times together. I attached a picture of one of those days. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Wow, we are extremely sorry to hear this. Calvin & little Calvin we extend our heartfelt condolences to you both. When we met you guys in Shillington @ Governor Mifflin Appts 25 yrs ago our kids were small. We became friends thru our children and remember cooking out by the playground and also the times you guys hosted the fights! I know its been yrs, but you guys were always dear to us. We had some good times and never forgot about you guys. I remember Cretia's laughter always filling the room, talking bout that dang gone $1 store (😂). We are deeply affected by this, as well as our daughters Shay& Alaysha. They loved Ms Cretia, as they called her and remember her fondly. May GOD bless your time of sorrow and give you a peace that passes all understanding. Rest with God Cretia, we will look for you when we get there. Onelove.

Cretia, our beloved beautiful soul whom we loved dearly. As I sit here typing this memory with tears rolling down my face reflecting back when I was just a little girl and you and other family would come down to visit on the 4th of July for the festivities and just sitting around being silly with a lot of laughter, I can hear you saying (such the front door) one of your favorite sayings was so much fun with the love being shared. I can remember when you used to braid me and my sister Mandy’s hair and you telling me to stop crying “cause I’m not hurting you” when you knew you were grabbing all my edges ( insider 😄). You’re really going to be missed but I know you’re in a better place enjoying the beautiful scenery of Heaven until we see each other again I love you 💕 dearly my cousin and always will. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can’t heal.🙏🏽

Croatia we loved you so very much and as Nika and I we remembering you the other day she was talking about how you use to always say "shut the front door" and then she remembered the gold bangles you gave her the last time you saw her. You were simply amazing and we are all blessed that during you life that God allowed you into ours. We will miss you cousin and you certainly will never be forgotten. Every time I get crochet braids I will have you on my mind you know that was our thang. May God welcome you with open arms and may you sing and praise with the angels for eternity. We love you❤😇

Calvin and family, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Cretia. I had the pleasure of working with her at Aetna for 20 years, we were known as the 3 musketeers (myself, Nette and Cretia). Cretia, thank you for all the great memories we shared together in both the Reading and Allentown office. I will cherish every one of them, R.I.P. until we meet again.
To her family and friends, I pray that God will wrap His arms around each and everyone of you and give you strength you need during this difficult time.
