My deepest sympathy to the family and to all who were touched by Father Craig's ministry. I oddly met Father Craig first at Pit and Balcony--he was sitting in front of us, all Lutheran pastors, and he over heard us talking about how long our sermons are. After a while he turned around, introduced himself and told us that was too long.
I again met him at several ecumenical events and at the funeral of Marie Goodside, a member of the congregation I served and a family relation of Father Craig. The last time I saw him was at the prayer service for Bishop Cistone.
Father Craig, I will miss you, a dear brother and worker with Christ. Rest in peace, in the blessed arms of Jesus.
