    Craig, yours was a kind and loving heart. The hard knocks if life caused you to look for ways to soothe the pain and frustrations that your gentle spirit could not bear, and in the process, many people never got to know the sweet man hidden inside. I will not forget nor stop caring about that tender man I was lucky enough to know. I wish things could have been different. But you left the best of you behind in the loving, faithful, smart, hard working and beautiful daughter who has proven to be a wonderful Mother and admirable woman. In her, it is easy to see your loving, supportive nature. Rest easy now my friend. You knew the Lord, let Him heal all your wounds now.
