Melt butter in saucepan; add flour; saute onion and celery until light brown. Add okra and cook 30 minutes until it ceases to rope, stirring often. Stir in tomatoes and gradually add hot water and tomato liquid. Add bay leaves, crabs, shrimp, oysters, parsley, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer 1 hour, stirring often. Clean crabs; remove hard shells and legs. Crack claws, and cut body in half. Crabmeat can be substituted for crabs.
