    May you draw closer to God in prayer during your time of grief, James 4:8. May he comfort you and grant you lasting peace. You can look to God to help you endure the burden you bear by your faith in him and knowing that he cares. May you look forward to the fulfillment of God's promise to end all grief and restore life to all who live in his memory, Acts 24:15, 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.

    I did not meet Mrs. Croom but her daughter, Julie, has been a very good friend for many years. Julie shared many memories with meof her mother. I know she must have been a great lady and a great mom to have raised such a wonderful daughter. My sincerest condolences to Mrs. Croom’s husband, her children, grandchildren, and all extended family.
