Herbert Crawford Obituary

"I heard Him call Come follow that was all. The world grew dim, And I rose and followed after him. I rose and followed, that was all Who would not follow, If you heard Him call."

The name of the company was changed to Meade Westvaco. He decided to give working up in the year 2000.
