    My dear Carolyn and family,
    My heart is heavy for all of you. I loved Dick Crocker very much and will miss his precious text messages with the emoji that resembled him so much. What a dear man we will hold close in our hearts. I am thankful to the Lord for the life of Dick and the love and devotion he gave to every one of you. Prayers for your family.
    Lots of love being sent to you! Jackie Hull

  2. Mrs. Crocker, Rick, Len, and Scott,
    I am so sorry to learn that Mr. Crocker has passed away, less than a month after losing my own father. This is tough! Eddie and I were just talking the other day about a “behind the scenes” tour we had at Hofheimer’s courtesy of Mr. Crocker. My brother’s favorite part was getting to choose a cold drink out of the soda machine in the back. We both have very fond memories of growing up there on Chevelle Drive and miss the days where things seemed much less complicated. I am truly sorry for your loss and hope that cherished memories bring you comfort and peace at this difficult time. Sandy (Press) Hamilton
