Kristen, you don't know me, but I know who you and your family are. Your mother helped me when I needed extra care a couple of years ago. When she would help me, she always talked about her grandkids, she talked about the twins and their adoption and how much you and your husband loved and wanted them. She always had a picture or two to show me. She was so proud of all of her grandkids. When I read the obituary in the paper, my heart sank, as I remember her talking about the twins. I am so sorry to hear about him. You and your family are in my prayers as you go through the days and months ahead. Remember TO LET GOD carry you when it feels like you are walking alone.

To the Crawford family, my heart is just broken for the magnitude of your tremendous loss. There are just no words... Only prayers that you will feel God's Nearness and His Comfort, and that He will provide you the strength to get through this impossible time. When I recall Tate ( I can still hear his momma calling him "Sweet T) I see his beautiful smile, and his genuine, kind spirit. I see him on the playground, with Owen and all the gang, running and playing full tilt. I see him sneaking a peek at his library book (usually science/ animal related) during the math lesson... So many memories... Of a kind and thoughtful young man with a unique and fun personality. Tate, you will be deeply missed and your memory cherished. Hugs to the Crawford family.

Our hearts have broken after hearing the news. You and your boys are a major part of our motivation in deciding to foster and hopefully one day adopt. Tate had such a beautiful heart, mind, and smile. He radiated as he walked into the room and left a lasting impact on those who were blessed with his presence in his short life. We are still in disbelief. We cannot imagine the anger and brokenness you are feeling in the moment. We love your family so very much. We are praying for comfort for each of you as you grieve, and that you feel permission to be angry at this reality. God is big enough for all of your anger and tears. You will survive this pain. You will find a liveable grief. Tate is forever your son and their brother. This world will miss his smile and laugh everyday. Much love and many prayers, The Smiths (Channon & Chelsea)

Praying for your family. I met Tate and his brothers the last 9 weeks of school at front pickup. I loved the way they all loved each other. Such a sweet young man.
Peggy left a message on July 23, 2021:
As beautiful as that was, it still wasn’t able to describe the love and light he brought to the world. I don’t think I have ever seen such devoted, loving, brothers or kids with such huge hearts full of compassion (well except for their cousins). He had so much to give to the world and it breaks my heart to know he didn’t have that chance. To Rusty and Ashley, I can’t even begin to comprehend the pain you are feeling. I don’t think their is a greater loss than a child. I know that you guys never missed a chance for a hug or an I love you. He went to Heaven knowing that he was 1/3 of the best part of your lives and that he was deeply loved by you both and so many others. To the rest of the family, you are all in my thoughts and prayers also because you are all so close and it is almost as unbearable for you all. Your love will bring you together and will be the reason Ash, Rusty, Owen, and Mason get through this. Love and prayer are the only way through. You will all remain in my heart and prayers. ♥️
