Dearest Crowe family,
Words can not explain how I feel right now. I just found out the Grandma Crowe passed away. :(

Back in the 1980s my mom met Elizabeth in Indianapolis, IN. They had a beautiful relationship to the extent that my mom called Elizabeth, "Mother."
We grew up calling Elizabeth "Grandma."

Being first generation American kids, we were blessed with having our Grandma Crowe. She fulfilled every requirement as a loving Grandmother. She came to all of our Grandparent Days during elementary school, all of our symphony concerts, dance recitals, sports days, birthday parties, graduations, family events... Everything. It was a blessing to have such a beautiful-loving Grandma.
After she moved to Florida we stayed in touch but life got in the way with college/careers. The last time I spoke to Grandma she was getting her nails done!

Grandma lived a loving life. Her heart was filled with love for everyone. I can still remember her wearing a power suit with heels, pink lipstick and perfect hair. Grandma was a role model for us.
May God grant her place in the highest of heavens. Ameen.
I love you Grandma.
