  1. Mr. Crisman

    I only met mr. Crisman once. On the elevator at the hospital. We started talking and learned e we lived close to the same area. Before we got off the elevator and walked through the lobby, the thing he talked about most was his son. He was so very proud! From our brief time I could see that he was a great man. Sending love and my condolences to his family. Rest In Peace Mr. Crisman
