Meet Carol Ann Ormes, Crab Kate and Jonathon Livingston Crab.
In August 1976 Carol purchased Kate and Jon at two different stores along a boardwalk in Maryland. Their shells were the size of the tip of her pinky.
35 years later, in 2011, Crab Kate passed away.
Jon passed away February 2021, 45 1/2 years together. Jon, Kate and Carol will always be an inspiration to the LHCOS community.
