Dr. Crawford was all that a physician of excellence could embrace. He always asked in his "father time" Southern voice, "may I come in?" For which I was grateful, usually balancing a nursing baby on my lap. I met Dr. Crawford in 1989 and always looked forward to visits with him until the end... I loved his flying stories, those of his youth saying he decided a long time ago just to keep believing in the magic of Santa and Christmas jokingly, the poem he quoted about the Halcyon blue sea and hallowed shell ( we both love the sea) ... He will be so missed and I will carry these memories in my heart forever. Dr. Crawford and Dr. George delivered my three girls naturally and perfectly... Which says alot as I have a rod in my back due to corrective surgery, but came thru each pregnancy glowing and baby too! I will miss the practice and my children will miss the doctors and staff too.Dr. Crawford, such an amazing brilliant man always recalled the children's named and our talks from long ago....my father a physician knew Dr. Crawford well, and they loved to talk planes as dad was a navy pilot...in closing, they just don't make them like these doctors anymore but if someone finds anyone even close please post his name for me. I wish I were going to take Crawford a Christmas present tomorrow instead of getting my charts...bless you Mary and the family, staff which took such first class care of me, my children and so many. Even Mary took the time to show my youngest girls how to trace their hands so I could be examined...fair winds to you all...may the wind always be at your back and road rise up to meet you.
