    Mrs. Crozier will be missed. Even though I didn’t know her that well,what I did know is she was a kind, gentle, and beautiful Christian woman. God Bless the family she leaves behind and may the good Lord Jesus Christ shine upon them today,tomorrow,and forever more.

I can hear her sing "I’ll Fly Away" and "How Great Thou Art" as I sit here remembering her. Barbara, God is your mother now. My prayers and thoughts are with you. Lee Puckett
