  4. So sorry to hear about Rod’s passing. While we seemed to lose contact over time, Rod was one of best friends in high school. We were able to push each other academically at WWR. I have a picture from the Tribune where we were honored as “Outstanding Negro Students”. Glad that time have progressed for sure. We used to razz each other by calling out our mother’s name. “How’s Marian doing – he would say. RIP to my friend abs blessings to the entire Crenshaw family.

  5. My condolences to the Crenshaw Family. May Lord Jesus Christ keep you all in his loving arms.
