To Mrs, Gardner, Craig and Gary,
Please know how you and your entire family are in my thoughts and prayers. I know how hard the last few years have been on all of you. It is hard to witness someone suffer. You will now see the gifts that he will leave behind in what he has passed down to you. You are all special people in part because of what he has taught you. I am not surprised to read he was one of the gang. Of course he was - Knowing Craig he wouldn't have it any other way. Thanks for letting me know him.
