    Our family’s love goes out to you all. A young man that I remember as a fun loving kid, joking with his grandma. Our young people are being taken too soon and leave us with our memories. Keep his sweet memories and I pray that those memories will comfort you all. Love and prayers, from our family to yours.

    Our deepest condolences to all the loved ones of Michael Crum. Especially his Mother, Father and Grandmother (my Aunt Sarah) and other two brothers and his Uncle Terry Short. I know Michael had problems, but his life had changed drastically as he went through rehab, gotten clean, and we are so sorry he relapsed, and pray his relapse and death changes the life of other current addicts and friends. Drugs are not the answer, they are the problem! I am proud he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour. I know Michael loved the mountains and being with his family and loved ones. We will see him again, as long as you are a true Christian and follow God's word. Rest in peace, Michael. We love you!
