Some of my best childhood memories were bowling at Crowell's on Friday afternoons on the kid's league. We always had a great time. I was able to take my own children to Crowell's when they were old enough to throw a candlepin bowling ball. I have nothing but great memories of Ralph, the entire Crowell family and Crowell Bowl. My deepest sympathies during this sad time. Julie Vales Kacmarcik

I can remember playing with Ralph and David when the turkey and chicken farm was going full blast. They had an old car in a field and I learned to drive (well almost) on that old car and marvelled at David and Ralph going fast in a dirt circle they had made by running hard. Moving grain bags, helping on rare occasion with harvesting the chickens was a great learning experience. My Nana Ruth and Grandpa Sam used to take me there. Bob Munroe, Dallas, Texas
