    I had known Crotty all my life she used to babysit me when I was 10 days old until I was about 16 (when my parents went out of town). I miss her everyday to this day. She taught me how to bake, how to knit, how to make pompoms and many other things. She was energetic and when my brother and I were little she use to play soccer with us in the park. I hope she knows how much I miss her. I am glad that before she passed she got to meet my son. I think she’d be proud of me for the job that I’m doing. To all her family members and her “special” families I’m sorry for the loss of this great woman who loved people and who loved God so very much. I love you and miss you Crotty.
