I am your granddaughter Belinda. Although, I never got the chance to meet you, I feel as though I knew you. Your son and my My Daddy Walter B. Crews Sr., told me many stories about you. I am a genealogist today because of the desire to learn more about my ancestors like you. Grandpa, you were taken from us way too soon but, I know you are on duty full time in Heaven. You will never be forgotten. I Love You.
