Brother Crowson was our Pastor for several years at Salado Baptist Church. I worked with Norma when we were both younger. We loved Brother Crowson and Norma. They were wonderful people. Sorry for the family loss.
I am so sorry for your loss! I am also thankful I got to have a short conversation with him a few weeks ago at the memorial service. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you go through this time. May God grant you peace and comfort.

Sheila and Mavis, I am so very sorry for your loss of your Dad. We are praying for you and your family during this most difficult time.
Brother Charles was such a kind, caring and compassionate man. We were blessed to have him officiate our wedding in 1980 and also our 25th anniversary vow renewal in 2005. He was always there to encourage us through the years and was there for us during the illnesses and loss of our parents. He took time to visit with my Dad and my cousin Becky when he didn't feel well himself. I'm sure countless others have similar stories. He was truly a bright light in a dark world. Sincere condolences to you, Mavis, Sheila and your entire family.
We have you all in our thoughts and prayers. Kenny and Mellissa
