  1. The ties between the Cruse and Aalen families go back over sixty years when Dr. Ray and Milton started offering quality health care at Hearne General Hospital. Many relationships grew: Pat and Bernie joined the picture as well as the adventures of Bobby and Jimmy with Model T and Model A Fords. After Ray and Bernie left the scene Milton would frequently visit with Pat and they enjoyed a special friendship. Such a gracious generation of family and friends with which we have been forever blessed. May they Rest In Peace.

  2. To the family of Mrs. Pat Cruse,

    My name is Alondra and I worked in the kitchen of Crestview retirement community.

    I often worked in the skilled nursing section and had many conversations with Mrs. Cruse.

    She will be remembered fondly by myself and the rest of the staff at Crestview.

    God Bless you all.
