Not sure what to say?

To All of the Crone Family:

I am so sorry to learn of Jim's passing. My heart goes out to all of you. He was such a special man and so loved by you all. You were fortunate to have such a wonderful father; humble, passionate and handsome! I don't know how he passed but I'm sure you all surrounded him and he felt your love.

I lost my step-father, Jerry Tuft, not long ago, he made it to just past 80.

To Cathleen and Jim: Thank you for helping me through my...

Cathleen and Family... I was truly saddened to hear of Mr. Crone's passing. He was a very nice and kind man who always had a smile that would light up the room. I am honored to have know him. May God our Father continue to comfort and strengthen you during this time. His legacy will live on for generations to come. God bless you.

I am saddened to hear of Jim's passing. He was a gentleman through and through. When I think of the early days at Malmark Jim was always the kind and gracious representative from the South. A true dapper dresser Jim's white suits always added to the grandeur and style of his exhibit. A talented and 'love-of-life' individual. Jim will be missed! Lovingly, Susan Berry

My heart felt compassions to the family for your loss. I am the Son of Jack Patterson 1930 to 2007 and the Grandson of Howard Patterson 1908 to 1989. The photo of Jim on this memorial page looks remarkably like my father. I feel fortunate to have found this memorial honoring the life of a loved family member.

Our sympathies to all the family on the passing of such a wonderful man - the epitome of grace, class - someone with unmatched charisma with that everpresent warm, friendly smile. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dear ones, I only knew Mr. Crone from my visits to Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens where I would see him and the beautiful Mrs Crone. I considered myself "lucky" if I would catch them both at the front desk. They filled me with love and joy...as beautiful as any flower in the garden. I am so very grateful to have shared the few brief moments I did. I express my deepest condolences to the family. Most sincerely. Jene and Claude Shipman

I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved Father. What a grand living legacy he leaves of cherished memories and his beautiful family.

Mrs. Crone, Colleen, Buzz, Cathleen & Carolyn: you will each be in my family's prayers, and you all have my deepest sympathy in your loss. Mr. Crone was a gentleman in the best sense of the word. He and Mrs. Crone were beloved, steadfast friends to my parents for many decades. When I was a child, he was my favorite among the adults who would come to visit my parents. I do not recall ever seeing him without a jacket and tie; indeed, the only accessory we wore more often was his...

Carolyn, so sorry to read of your father's passing. My thoughts are with you and your family during this time.
