Growing up around the Crawley family and getting to know him has always been a blessing. I regret that I was out of country and not able to attend his home going service, but he will always be missed be myself and countless others he influenced throughout his life. 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."
