Etta Crawford

December 31, 1947 — November 2, 2021

Life Epitome

Beyond life’s golden sunset lies a city bright and fair;

In the land of God’s tomorrow our love one await us there

It’s a place of wondrous beauty where they know not grief or fear

When God himself in tenderness

Wipe away all tears
