Lucky Surrey couple David and Patricia Crawford plan to share their winnings

SURREY — It’s good to be a Crawford.

Surrey grandparents Patricia and David Crawford aim to help their family with their $2 million BC/49 lottery win.

The couple won the jackpot in the Feb. 24 draw after buying the winning ticket at the Fort Langley Husky.

“Disbelief, shock, euphoria and then you return to disbelief,” said David Crawford, describing the gamut of emotions he ran through upon learning of the big win. “It’s really hard to explain to people how you feel. You just don’t believe it!”

The couple has five grandchildren. Looks like Easter just became Christmas. “There’ll be cheques at our family dinner this weekend,” Patricia Crawford laughed. “It’s will be nice to share the wealth.

“We’re mostly happy for our family,” she said. “We have enough now to help family and extended family.”
