We are sending our thoughts and prayers to the family. Mr Crain or "Red"as he was so lovingly referred to was a one of a kind sweet man that was full of funny stories and liked sharing them with everyone. We know he could grow a great garden with delicious veggies and would see him at Farmer's Market and purchase some of them from both he and his sweet wife. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. RIP "Red"!
