My grandfather does in a very tragic accident leaving his wife Mary Catherine widowed with 3 children and one on the father, Timothy Bernard Crump.  My father is the most amazing man and I can’t even imagine how difficult it was for my grandmother to raise 4 children alone and my father to grow up without one.  My father served in the army, married his high school sweetheart and has 3 grown children.  Father like son.  Good men, true heroes.
