So sorry about the loss of Mr. Jim Cronk. I'm sure his loss will be difficult for his family but they can take comfort in the knowledge that he was a good man. I only knew Mr. Cronk as a member of the Carpenters Battery of the Sons of Confederate Veterans but he was a very nice and easy going man. He was a Good Man.
