    Craig, what can I say other than you were my brother, my friend and my protector. You and I have been through a lot the last 35 years and the last year having you live with us has been the best thing in our lives. Brother,-á I Love You and will miss you but know that you are with us every day. Memories…. where to start? Where to end?? There are to many to share but man have we had fun in the 35 years we have known each other.

    Craig, you are terribly missed!! We grew up together from elementary on thru to our adult lives, you were my brother and my friend!-á
    When you first came back here from Florida I will always remember you coming out to the Ruff House one night and Booker and Teagan were there with a bunch of their buddies and they were telling them all about you and you walked in and somehow the conversation turned about guns (this was before these boys had really ever seen anyone carrying one) but then all of a sudden you started pulling guns out of about every pocket you had and on your side, then you moved down and pulled a couple that were strapped to your legs and the look on all those boys faces was priceless…all of a sudden you were the coolest guy they had ever met!! Lol and I remember you bringing Aaron out to the Ruff House to hang out for the day and he talked so proudly of you all day G¥ñ Also the time you helped me out with my stalker problem, I knew after that the guy was never going to bother me again!!-á I have too many memories to write on here and so many tears have been shed remembering all of them with you…You will be missed!! G¥ñ you brother!!
