    Dear Buffey, I am so sorry for the loss of your dad. Watching the video that y’all put together enabled me to see where you got that beautiful smile from, and how important his family was to him. I will be praying for you and your entire family during this difficult journey. May you all feel God’s strength and comfort during this very trying time. Love and Prayers, Ms. Eileen

    The Crecelius family LOVED John Pelham. And you could talk to John Pelham five minutes and know how much he loved his family. I am so sorry and I want you to know how much he was loved and how much he will be missed.
