Not sure what to say?

When I was an adolescent I began to experience pain in my left leg, I was referred to Dr. Craven by our family doctor and he treated me for over two years before he was able to diagnose a rare benign tumor.

Randy was my Orthopedic Surgeon from 1988 until he retired. We have thought of him, his tenderness and his gentle spirit on many occasions.

We loved Dr Craven - he replaced one of my dads knees and both of my moms. RIP

Dearest Shannon and family: I have not kept up with you like I should have. Miss seeing you at the law firm and your dad at the hospital. Hope that all is well with the family. Your dad was a great man and will be missed tremendously.

Still living on Woodcrest

Sincere condolences to Dr. Cravens family . I won't forget him :over 10 years ago he did moms hip replacement on a Sunday AM . She recovered so well: was back doing "the conga"at her nursing facility before long. At the office appt. come to find out we both went to BA in Dallas . Another Family member also saw him with success. A good man& I appreciated his sense of humor

Pam, Shannon, and David,
So sorry for your loss. We love you all and will keep your family in our prayers.
