  1. A cette famille nos plus sincères condoléances. Que tout l’amour dont vous avez besoin soit au rendez-vous. Soyez bien entourés de vos proches et amis. Affection à toi Sarah et ceux que tu aimes. Danielle et Jean-Louis.

  2. For about 2o years we played together worked together and laughed out asses off at this world. “Crash,” as he was commonly known knew how to make an entrance and sucked all the oxygen outta the room one night and would be quiet as a mouse the next. We experienced road trips of epic proportions so much so we couldn’t speak a word to one another the entire way back. I’ll miss my dear friend and cherish the trips we enjoyed, but most of all his southern charm and his shit-eating grin. Wherever you may be my fair-skinned friend I hope we bump into each other again amongst the cosmos. My deepest condolences to his brother Mike, and partner and daughter. In a fair-sized group of friends we’ve lost an unbelievable number. Crash’s passing I think took a lot of his peeps by surprise. May you rest in peace my dear friend you were a pleasant chapter in all y’all’s life.
