My heart is so broken and my very soul is overwhelm at the printed news of my childhood friend's transition. I've been trying to contact him for two weeks. My worst fears were just realized. We talked at least five times a week with very short time apart. To the Crawford Family, hold on God still is. My life from henceforth will be a whole lot more empty. Rest John Crawford my friend and my brother. I will love you forever. I hate I didn't have a chance to say rest until I get there. Only our God knows the depth of hurt and pain I must bare from now on. Sleep on John, take your well deserved rest. Thank you for being in my life from kids. Family, be encouraged, God will take care of you. I love you all.

Dear Crawford family what a terrible loss. We have known John for over 20 years , he was an amazing man and a very funny guy as well as a very talented piano player . However it was difficult to get him to play ,but when he did it was awesome to hear.We know there is a special place in heaven for John because We know God has a sense of humor and John will keep him smiling for ever. We will miss him very much
