My prayers are always with his family."
"All of in the community mourn the loss of our mayor and friend, Oscar. I worked with Oscar on many, many community projects and he always provided the leadership and encouragement needed for the situation. I particularly remember his dedication to Lanier Memorial Hospital and his faithful board service. He was on the board when we decided to merge into EAMC. He supported and encouraged me (as President) every step of the way. Oscar also was an enthusiastic supporter of the Chattahoochee Fuller Center's efforts to bring more affordable housing to Lanett and other Valley communities. The City's help with our efforts was critical to our success. Thanks Oscar....for the memories and hard work that made our community a better place."

God bless Juliette and the family."
"On behalf of the New Hope Foundation, Inc. Board members we extend our sincere condolence to the family. As a Board member, Mayor Crawley's contributions were invaluable. He provided leadership, inspiration and experience that helped steer our charitable organization in the right direction. The Foundation which he so cherished is dedicated to the restoration of the historic New Hope Rosenwald School that his mother attended. His physical presence may be gone but his spiritual presence will remain alive and provide the motivation to make his dream a reality.
