I'm so sorry to hear of Craig's passing. Although I have not seen him in years, my late husband and I loved him very much. There was once a family connection to him, but in our hearts he was always family. Craig was always very sweet, smiling and funny....He will be missed...Maybe now he and Bill are sitting on a big front porch in Heaven having Happy Hour....RIP my Dear friend!!!!
