Thank you for the outpouring of love, support, and prayers during the past few days. While the loss of our beloved Crosby is great, our faith in God remains strong. Crosby was a superhero from the day he joined our family. In death, his legacy of love and life will continue through the organs shared with other families in need.
A superhero is one who has abilities like no other; one who helps the world become a better place. Our Crosby, with God’s hand, is a true superhero – giving to others so they may love their family, laugh with their siblings, and embrace the joy they share.
As a family, we will take the time to honor our son and brother. We pray for peace and ask for privacy in the days ahead as we remember Crosby.
