Two services over the next two days have been announced for Coach Crain.

An open memorial is set for Thursday at 4pm in the worship center in Cottage Hill Baptist Church in Mobile. In Birmingham there will be a visitation at 3:30pm followed by a 5:30pm service of celebration at the Southern Heritage Funeral Home on Friday.

A statement was released on Wednesday by the family, “We appreciate all the kind words and prayers for our family as we face this difficult time.  Kurt was a positive presence and influence on many lives, especially through his love of football, and we hope he will be remembered for all the gifts and passion he brought to the game.  Kurt was also a wonderful husband and father, and we ask that you give our families time to grieve our loss privately.  Thank you.”

Individuals wishing to assist the Crain family can make a donation to the “Crain Nation Fund” at any BancorpSouth Bank branch which has been established on behalf of his three surviving children.
