One friend i will never forget! / Brian Janowsky (Best friends ) RIP James Crawford 1985-2005
James..the past will never be forgotten. from hanging out between classes in high school, to running around the neighborhood screaming and scaring little kids and having a haunted house in your garage with a chainsaw on halloween, to driving ALL around town in your big red truck dancin and singing and yelling out at random people while we drove through the walmart parking lot, to doing the fire drill running around the truck at stop lights!, and hitting up every possible place there was around here to just catch a few games of pool together.
Thats just a few pages turned to the book of memories we have had together. Id have to say the last summer we hung out together before you got your job traveling around was the best i have ever had! And yes james you were definitly the #1 beach bum of us all!! Man all we ever did during the day time on the beach was hacky sack, swim, and party the nights away sleeping on the beach! Theres nothing like running over a porter potty with the Big Red and gettin away with it!!
It felt like you were more then just a guy i knew.. You were and will always be my best friend i will ever have. We didnt have to go get into trouble and do stupid things like everyone else did around here breaking the laws..we got our pure excitement out of doing things not many other people would think to do. I will never forget the night we went to walmart and you saw this Bright pair of yellow boxers with a huge smiley face on them, and you told us "hey guys im going to walk around and ask every single person i see if i would look sexy in this pair of boxers and if i should buy them or not.., if i get more yes's then no's ill buy them for sure!" sure enough we were there for a couple hours walkin around talking to every single person who crossed our paths! and yes those boxers came home with him that night! good times for sure!
Well this is the annivarsary of the day you will never be forgotten.. This day is your own special day where family and friends and loved ones will all reminice of the crazy times we have all shared with you and how much energy and excitement you brought the first second you would walk through any door! I miss you dearly bro
I have a certain song that i listen to 3 times if not more each and every day and it does nothing but make me think of you and how strong a friendship really is "Bro Hymn" by Pennywise..those words describe it all. your in our hearts in our own special ways..
To his family and friends / Debbie (Craddock) Browning (Friend) I'm so sorry that you all have to go through this. James was such an amazing person, and I know you all miss him more than words can ever say. Do you remember the time when I was visiting you all and Chrystal in NC, and James was showing us how he sold magazines? We had such a blast! He will always be in our hearts, and I know he loved you all like crazy. He's your angel now, and is watching over you.
thinking of you today and everyday / Eva Turos (Good Friend ) Hey you,I was thinking of you today when we were hopping. We were going to GA. we are in agusta. this is the place where I found out that you left us. the whole way here I could not stop thinking of that day, and Shane and I listen to Tim Mcgraw the whole way there. I ,miss you a bunch I wish you were still here with us. Monica,Journie,and I and I think Chris too are gonna go and do what i told your Mom we were gonna do when we get to Atl,Ga. I can't wait to close that chapter in my life. We miss you a bunch and it is still hard for us that your not here. Well I have to go . I just wanted you to know that we all love you and miss you more then ever.....Love Eva
So Sorry / Jane Jones (Mother to William Matt Jones ) I know your pain all too well. There is no sense in parents burying their children at such young ages. Your son sounds a lot like mine.

Dearest James, I will be going to Missouri for 2 weeks I'm going to go to the first place that we met and hang out there for a while. I'm going to go put flowers down on a place that me and Shawna have next to her brother in memory of you. I love you and miss you soo much. I cant believe that its almost a year and I have been without you. I miss you more and more everyday. Everynight I look at your picture and tell my self that I want to see you in my dreams. I miss your hugs and your kisses.. I miss hearing the words I love you. I miss running into your arms and hugging you soo tight! I miss your blue eyes when they look into mine. I miss your hand in mine.... I miss you and your smile..... I love you and always will love you. You have that key to my heart that no one else will ever ever have.. I still picture my life with you.... I wonder what it would be like. I wonder what we would be doing and were our lifes together would end up. My life is now in NC and your life is now in heaven.... There are days that I wish that I was there with you just to get that touch that I have been longing for. I'm going to end this for now but know that My love will never ever end.... Hugs and kisses to my sweet angel.... Love always Crystal Ann Close
