Dear Family Members
With reference to the death notice of Dr Winston Crookendale in the Sunday Sun dated 6 January 2019, I wish to offer my deepest sympathy.
Few things cause more stress or heartache than the death of a parent, sibling, relative, or dear friend.
A strong belief in a loving God brings comfort, The Bible says at Psalm 34:15 “The eyes of Jehovah are on the righteous and his ears listen to their cry for help.”
Expressing our feelings in prayer to God is more than good therapy or a means of organizing our thoughts. It actually helps to establish a personal relationship with the Creator, who can use his power to comfort us.
I sincerely hope that this brief note will be of some practical help during the grieving process.
May God provide you comfort.
With sincere Sympathy
Marilyn & Shurley Reece
I am so sorry for the loss of your father. Sending you and your family my sincere condolences at this difficult time.
I wish to express to the entire Crookendale family, relatives, staff and friends my deepest condolences. Dr. Crookendale was a cheerful, wonderful man and one of a kind doctor who wore a permanent smile, he will be missed.
My deepest condolences to Carla-mae, Graeme and Vanya on the passing of your Dad. As a teenager and as a young man, I can recall only seeing your Dad,Dr Crookendale,
operating in two modes - when he was not inspiring us as younger people, he was encouraging us. He knew his calling. May his soul rest in peace.
Our sincere condolences to all of the family. Not only a surgeon " par excellence" but wonderful human being, and one who lived his faith and loved his Lord. He will be much missed.
Carla-Mae, Graeme and Vanya, we simply could not believe that our dear brother and friend (your Dad) had died. We would like to offer you our deepest condolences and prayers knowing that as a mother comforts her children, so the Lord God will comfort you. Shalom.
Carla-Mae, Graeme, Vanya:
We are sincerely sorry for your loss. Your father was a brilliant individual and he loved the Lord.
We mourn with you, at this time, but not like others do for we know we are going to see him again.
Condolences from the Johnson-Patrick families of King Street, Pinelands, St. Philip Barbados and USA.
You all will be in our prayers. God be with.
Dr. Winston Crookendale has left an indelible impact on my life and was a central figure in the development of my Christian walk as a university student in the early 70's. His example, as well as his advice, clarified for me essential issues in my Christian faith that set the tone for my whole life and ministry. I am eternally grateful and commit to praying for his family and those close to him that mourn his passing. May his soul rest in peace and may light perpetual shine upon him.
Carla-Mae, Graeme and Vanya, it was very sad to hear of the passing of your dad and our long-time friend, Winston. As we offer our deepest sympathy, it is great to know that he is now with the Lord in whom he trusted. May you and all the family be comforted by this assurance.
To the Crookendale family, Carla-Mae, Vanya, and Graeme; please accept my deepest condolence on the passing of Winston. He was a good man.
May he Rest In Peace...
Condolences to young Dr Crookendale and his sisters from me and my dad Colin(one of his old domino partners). I am laid up with the flu and will not be able to make it, but my thoughts and prayers are with you.
Winston, we miss you, I remember an occasion when we were chatting and we said that a Christian's life is like the stars in the sky giving light to this dark dark earth. You are one of those lights shining down amidst the stars still giving your light, laughter friendship and talent to the earth.
May God continue to blessing and comfort your family and all those you miss you.
Our condolences to the family. Winston has been our physician and friend. He was always full of fun whenever we met. He will be missed by all who knew him. Our thoughts and prayers to all, especially Arlene who has been so kind and helpful over the years.
“Rest in Peace”. Roy & Wilma Smith

Our deepest sympathy to Humphrey and family .
"Doc", the only name I referred to Dr. Crookendale as was more than one of my clients/ employers. He was my good friend & the big brother I never had. A man of integrity, A man I trusted and highly respected, A man who trusted and highly respected me, A man who stuck closer than a brother, A man who tried to help all of his friends & found time for them no matter how busy he was. He loved many and was loved by many. He has healed and influenced the lives of many, and therefore he will be missed by many. "He has left us too soon".
On behalf of my wife and I, I wish to express to the entire Crookendale family, relatives and friends, our deepest condolences, love & support at this time of bereavement.
"May he rest in peace and rise in glory".
Deepest sympathy at the passing of our longtime friend, Dr. Winston. We offer prayers and condolences, especially, to Carla-Mae, Graeme and Vanya from Cranston, Jhanna, and Jie Burke. We have great memories of our friendship with your mom and dad, Kay and Winston. May they rest in peace!
Dear Crookendale Family, so sorry for you loss.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
And you have my deepest condolences.
