Not sure what to say?

Dear Mary and family. Our thoughts & prayers continue to be with you. I have such great memories of times spent with Craig & his family while living in Dawson. His grandparents, Bertha & Chris, were pretty much our adopted grandparents when ours lived so far away & they lived next door. Besides being a classmate, I remember the times his cousins (Kent Molde) would visit their grandparents & we'd play Anti-Anti-Over, trying to get that ball over their tall home! Also...

Mary, Stephanie, Erika, and family

From our "soul buddy" youth as double first cousins of the same age--Craig and I had a special bond.
As young best friends we shared"overnights" getting in the appropriate amount of mischief to drive our parents --Ade/El and Ine/Chet a little batty.
Now in later years, I have been continual amazement at the continuing health issues Craig dealt with and persisted with a positive attitude. Dale Carnegie and Norman...

It was my privilege to have worked with Craig at Superior. He was a great guy and he'll leave behind many friends that will miss his positive energy and joy for life.

I am so sorry to hear about Craig's passing. My heart-felt sympathy goes out to Mary and the family.

Mary & family, I am sorry for your loss. Craig hired me for my first job. I was lucky to have worked with him for 15 years and considered him a good friend. He was a good man who worked hard and endured so much with his health. He has been freed from his burdens and you have many good memories to hold. He will be missed by many!

I am so sorry to hear of Craig's passing. For 22 years while I worked with Craig at Superior Products he was like a big brother to me that had the same deep appreciation for nature. Every one of those years, he would let me know when the Red-winged black birds would return to the ditch outside of Superior. Even after I left Superior he would call me to let me know when they had arrived, usually around March 12th. Ever since I met Craig and heard about his goose hunting adventures out in...

Dear Heieren Family
We were saddened to hear of Craig's passing. We really enjoyed Craig's stories of his hunting adventures, when he and Mary came up to visit Steph and Gary's lake home last summer.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family

I will always have fond memories of working for Craig, he always went out of his way to say good morning, always had a joke to tell & always a positive attitude despite any health issues he may have had. Rest in peace! Blessing to Craigs family from his Supeior Friends.

Manny & I are holding you all in our thoughts and prayers....until a few days ago when our son Jeff told us, we didn't know about this tough journey Craig has had and all of you. I first knew Craig in 7th grade and graduated from H.S. with him and remember him always as a good friend and a wonderfully nice guy!! It was fun spending class reunion time with you two... God bless you all and hold you close!! I'm sure Craig was always so very proud of all his family. Manny and Jeanie...
