Dear Family of Mr. CP Crawford:

I again would like to reach out to all of you. Cp will truly be missed. He did live a good life. He had a wonderful life. Praise God. He was in great shape for someone who was 112 years old. Give God The Glory for that.
I am an avid walker, and I try to watch my diet, I am what you call middle-aged. I am 62 years old. If I make it to eighty. I will truly be blessed.

I use to weigh about 170 pounds. I now weigh about 140 pounds. And I think I wear a size 8 or 10 in dresses. That's a good thing. I use to wear a size 12, or 14. I don't smoke, drink, or take drugs.

When I was at Mercy Health in Cincinnati, Ohio for a check up, it was like a vacation to me. I did enjoy myself there. My doctor there was Dr. Wilkes. I think that he was about forty years old. I even prayed prayers during breakfast, lunch, and dinner, before the patients ate.
Again, I am a Member of Sixth Grace Presbyterian Church, located at 600 East 35th Street, Chicago, Illinois 60616. The Reverend Dr. David B. Thornton is the Pastor, The Moderator of The Session, and The Head of The Staff. He is not only My Pastor, but My Mentor, Friend, Teacher, and Spiritual Advisor, as well as My Confidante. I believe in Him. Like I have Faith in God.
The Reverend Donald B. Register, who will soon be The Pastor Emeritus of Sixth Grace Presbyterian Church on Sunday, December 1, 2019, is another Mentor, and Teacher of mine's. He did get a fax machine into the office, when I worked there in 1983-1990 as The Church Secretary.

I am again A Former Member of Church Musician Ship Guild, Inc. (1988-2008). The late Dr. Mildred G. Lewis was The Founder, and Executive Director. I was their Executive Secretary, and Public Relations Director. I was first their Administrative Assistant, but was promoted. I had received two trophies, A plaque, and several certificates from this great organization. All wereTHROWN away because of a bug problem in my house. I don't want to discuss it here.

I even had a photo album. It was very small. That was tossed as well. You all loved CP, but the Lord will truly love him the most of all. He is in a good place. I will keep you all in my prayers, especially during this difficult time. WITH MY LOVING THOUGHTS, AND PRAYERS, MS. VALINDA DARLENE JONES, OF CINCINNATI, OHIO. I USE TO WATCH THE BUD BILLIKEN PARADE ON TELEVISION. I THINK THAT MS. MERRI DEE WHO USE TO WORK AT WGN TV (CHANNEL 9) DID COME TO ONE OF THOSE PARADES. I KNOW THAT MS. ALISON PAYNE USE TO WORK AT WGN TV (CHANNEL 9). MS. THERESA FAMBRO HOOKS, NOW DECEASED, WORKED AT THE CHICAGO DEFENDER NEWSPAPER. SHE WAS ANOTHER FRIEND'S OF MINE'S. I DO RECALL THAT MY CHURCH HOME DID "HONOR" HER AT ONE OF THE "AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY CELEBRATIONS",ANOTHER FRIEND OF MINE'S WAS THE CHICAGO SUN-TIMES MS. STELLA FOSTER.AND MS. BARBARA WRIGHT PROCTOR. WHO USE TO DO COLUMNS FOR THE CHICAGO CRUSADER, I THINK. SHE WAS MARRIED TO THE LATE MR. GEORGE WILLIAMS WHO PLAYED AT THE "HOMEGOING SERVICE OF MS. MARION BARNETT" I THINK. MS. MARION BARNETT, AND THE LATE MS. LUCY REMBERT WERE GREAT PIANISTS, AS WELL AS THE LATE, MS. FELICIA WILLIAMS. I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPEN TO MS.LINNIE FREEMAN. I USE TO LIVE IN CHICAGO, Illinois. p.s. I KNOW THAT MRS. INGRID GRIMES MYLES, WHO IS MARRIED TO ELDER DAVID MYLES, OF SIXTH GRACE WORKS AT WGN TV (CHANNEL 9). SHE IS A GREAT MAKE-UP ARTIST.
