I am just wondering if this is a distant relative of mine. The name Croxford isn't a common name.

My great grandfathers last name was Croxford. I would really like to see if we are related someway.

I will never forget Corlene. She always let me spend time at her house with Jill. I’ll never forget her support and warm hug in the temple when I was married. She raised a wonderful family and our love and condolences are being sent to them all.

Much love and Aloha!
