I will always remember you David, laughing and riding bikes...we were young and our life stretched out before us so our spirits were lite. I hold this image of you in my mind and heart. I am grateful that I met you on this life. I know you cared about CASA-the organization that helps women and children from domestic violence so I will do my part...just because of you. Thank you David, for everything. XO Jerrie Spencer

Words can not express how sad I am. David was my oldest friend, I knew him since I was born. Our mothers were best friends. While I am truly heartbroken, as we all are, my thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and coworkers at this time. I wish I had the right words to express my deep sympathy for the loss of this wonderful man. He will be missed but never forgotten.

"From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." Dave gave his all and he will rewarded in Heaven. To Dave's family and to the law enforcement family if you believe in a higher calling, then you would understand that Dave has been promoted to a new position as one of God's chosen protector of the Kingdom, a new angle in Heaven. There is a new badge in the sky, a new shining star that you can look up every night and know that Dave's on the job. May God bless and keep everyone of you in Jesus name I pray
March 02, 2011
To the Crawford Family,
I hope that you find peace knowing that Dave Crawford was a well respected man of the St. Petersburg Police Department. Words cannot ease your pain or replace the loss that you have had to endure. "God Speed", may he "Rest In Peace".
March 02, 2011
As a survivor and active Law Enforcement Officer I wish I could tell you it gets easier. I can't, but what I can tell you is that every day you wake up and continue to move forward David's legacy and memory move forward with you. I thank David for his dedication and passion and I thank you, his family, for continuing during this trial. Hold your head high and know that David is a true hero.
March 02, 2011
To the family ... What can one say when this happens to another family, and not to yourself? The immense loss, the emptiness, the void in the minds, hearts and souls of the Crawford family ... Memories, photos, horses, kitty's, may fill some, but never all. Above all, family, you have one another, be there when being there is needed. You have to hold on to what you've got. Cherish, protect and keep your husband, your daddy within you every day, every hour, every minute until you are reunited.
God Bless And Keep You All.

REMEMBER ME

To the living, I am gone;
To the sorrowful
I will never return,
To the angry, I was cheated,
But to the happy, I am at peace.
And to the faithful
I have never left.
I cannot speak, but I can listen
I cannot be seen,
But I can be heard.
So as you stand
Upon a shore gazing
At a beautiful sea,
As you look upon a flower
and admire its simplicity.
Remember me;
Remember me in your heart
Your thoughts and your memories
Of the time, we loved,
The times we cried,
The times we fought,
The times we laughed.
For if you always think of me
I will have never gone.


May your precious memories forever keep our loved one close.
March 01, 2011
God Bless Officer Crawford's family and friends during their bereavement and give them peace and comfort.

I can't believe we have lost another beautiful angel. I can't tell you I know how your feeling. I can only express the loss of another brother. I hope with your faith you can somehow go on and remember your husband and father is in a better place. He can feel no pain
March 01, 2011
We can only imagine the grief his personal and professional families are enduring at this time. An angel taken too soon. May his life be remembered always and the good he did never taken for granted.
March 01, 2011
I understand all to fully the pain that Officer Crawfords family is going through. After the loss of my brother Matt Williams and K-9 DiOGi (eow 9-28-06) I only found comfort in knowing how much he did for our community. From all accounts, officer Crawford was also a huge part of the community. Always remember that it isn't his death that made him a hero, it was the life he chose to live. Today, he is walking the streets of gold with so many others who gave their lives so that we could all be safe. A Man Remembered Never Dies!
March 01, 2011
My fondest thoughts and most sincere prayers to the family of Officer Crawford. I have had conversations and interaction with him throughout my years in the city. A fine man who devoted his life to the citizens of St. Petersburg.

A man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. A person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal. This is David Crawford.

Officer Crawford was one of St. Pete's finest. He would listen, understand, and always make the right decision.

Rest in Peace, David. Your dedicated service has been recognized more than you would ever know. My heart is broken knowing that you will not be here for us physically... but I am certain you will be looking over us in spirit. I will miss you, man.

No mother should have to see their child on a police video. No wife should have to hear their husband was murdered and for NO reason. No child should be without their father. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mrs Crawford and their daughter. This was a senseless murder and I hope St Pete will find some inner peace soon!!
February 23, 2011
As a member of the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, I met him in the mid 1980s as softball teammates. He was such an outstanding person that I invited him to play on a team of just Sheriff's Office members, and he did so for several years. The attached photo was taken in 1989 when our team won a Clearwater Rec. Dept. championship. Dave immediately fit-in with his 'play-hard, have fun, humble winner / gracious looser / play as a team' mentality. He will be sorely missed by all PCSO deputies who had the honor of knowing him.
February 23, 2011
Mrs.Crawford, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. As a deputy wife I'm can't imagined what you're going through. God bless you all!!!

David had a gentle soul despite his size and occupation. He loved his daughter so much; he loved being a police officer and helping others. It has been quite some time since I last spoke with David. This is a great loss to so many people for so many reasons. I am very proud to call you brother. You will be greatly missed.

God Bless Officer Crawford, his family and friends. "I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic he died to save.
I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom." Abraham Lincoln
