    Our thoughts, prayers, and condolences go out to all of Mark’s family. I know my brother Todd and I fondly remember as “youngsters” growing up on Mom and Dad’s farm, east of Michigantown (east of Russ and Jean Rule’s farm). Mark was a farm hand for Dad while Dad was still actively engaged in farming in the late 60s and early 70s. We especially remember one year when Mark bought my brother and I a brand new, metal snow sled for a Christmas gift! We had that sled for years! Thank you, Mark, for the memories and the fun times. Peaceful rest, Brother.

    Todd and Tobe Leazenby

    Dear Crum Family: I just saw this on Face Book. I was so sad to find this out. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you, even though very late. His Aunt Jenny Rushing passed October 29, 2021. She was 93. I know she spoke often of Aunt Ethel’s children.

    God bless you all.
