Dear Crawford/cook families

I have been trying to call Kay as I don’t have many first cousins

I am so sorry to learn of Kay’s passing as about 10 years older than me

Her Dad was about 15 years older than my Father, Merton John.

I just happened to look at Times Argus today

David, you are the only one left that I know. As I know Kay & Neal had children that I have not meet

I am going to leave my contact information if someone would keep in the loop

David John, I have been down to your place a few years ago. Kay did say you stayed in contact with you & Linda.
