Andrew, James, and Thomas, so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. I didn't hear until this evening.I was so shocked.You probably don't remember me, but I will always remember you. Your Dad loved you so much and was so proud of you. I had not seen your Dad for quite awhile, and then last year he called me. I caught up with the latest on you guys. I think the last time I saw you, Andrew was about 12, and James and Thomas were about 7. Craig was such a nice person, with such a big heart. And he just could not be more proud of you guys. Please give your family my condolences as well.Your grandmother was so very close to his heart and thoughts as well. I know your hearts must be breaking, and I wish I could help. Your whole family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Rest In Peace Craig!!
Andrew, James, and Thomas, I was so shocked to hear of your Dads passing. Talked to a friend tonight and she told me. So sorry that I didn't know before now. The last time I talked to Craig,( he called me last year), he never said anything about being ill. All we talked about was his boys.He was always so proud of you,and loved you so much!!But you know that.I know you probably don't remember me, you were still pretty young the last time I saw you.Your dad was a very dear friend, that I had just had not seen or talked to for a very long time, until he called me last year. Please relay my sympathy to your grandmother as well. In fact my sympathy to the whole family. Craig was a good man, May he rest in peace.
Oh My! So sorry to hear about Craig!
I have known Craig for many years! He was always "so much fun!"
I will sure miss him!
I was just one of the guys Craig "sort of" hung around with,..."back in the days"
Sympathy to the family!
We were good friends as boys growing up. Rest in peace ole' Buddy.
Craig had an open heart for so many. He never met a stranger and he always had a good joke or two for you and made you feel like you had known him for years even if you had just met him. Craig had many passions in life. What I always got from him was that his biggest passion was his sons, and like in true Marine mentality he always wanted his boys to be strong and successful and never leave a man behind, especially their own brothers. Semper Fi, Craig, Semper Fi. You are loved and remembered by all those that knew you. Be at peace with the knowledge that Granny and your boys will be looked after. Goodbye my friend till we meet again. Your friend in life and in spirit, Scott.
Craig & I met in the Marine Corps 44 years ago and have remained friends ever since. He was always upbeat and a born leader. My heart goes out to his family. He always spoke with pride of his boys and loved his mother. I will miss you brother. We will meet again. Semper Fidelis. J.J.
I have so many great memories growing up across the street from you and growing up with Andrew, Thomas and James. You will be truly missed.
Craig, worked hard, had a great sense of humor and many great stories. Most of all, Craig had a strong moral fiber to have been a single father from the time the boys were very small. Now they are three fine young men. Craig you did well.
