So I thought to myself, it has been a long time since I talked to my old buddy, Craig. I did the Google thing and this popped up. So sorry Craig to hear of Devie's passing. You and she were indeed a fairytale romance. I was there the night you met her and I still remember me pushing you to ask her out. I think you were convinced she would say no, but I could tell it would be a yes. Like a month later and you guys were married? Ok, my memory doesn't recall how long it was but I remember it was very short. 28 years married with such a short romance... who knew? Sadly I didn't get to know her but she seemed so nice. I am very sorry it has taken me so long to look you up again. My deepest belated condolences.

Dear Craig and family,
Even though Devie was undergoing extremely difficult treatments, surgeries, and suffered from pain during the short time that I got to know her- she was always a shining light when she entered the Library here- smiling brightly and twinkling eyes- a true inspiration to all that she would encounter. Seeing the deep and selfless love that Craig the two of you shared was extraordinary- a fairy tale romance. Watching the remarkable devoted loving way that you cared for her - I must agree with Lynda- will be with me forever. Devie was clearly a beautiful woman inside and out and from what I can tell- had a very rich and fulfilling life. May you find comfort in that during this difficult time. She touched so many people- and that memory truly will live on warmly in the hearts of all.

Craig & Family, I am so so sorry to hear this, it breaks my heart, and my thoughts & prayers go out to you, I still cannot believe this I cried when I read the e-mail you sent me. Devie was an awesome person whom I was blessed to call a friend, I love her so much, and I cannot thank her enough for all the yrs of work on my beloved Mini Plush Lops, I will continue to do what I can for the breed in Devie's honor. I know that is what she would have wanted, I promised her I would always do my best to continue the breed, Devie always made me laugh, we would spend hrs talking on the phone about animals, I only got to meet her once, but she was such a loving and caring person and she done anything she could to help me with the bunnies. I will keep you guys in my prayers, again I am so sorry I had no idea anything was even wrong, I wish I could have talked to her again before this happened, if theres anything I can do, let me know Devie has blessed the lives of so many people, and I will continue her work to make the peoples perfect bunny in her honor. love

Craig, I'm so sorry to hear about your wife. My heart really goes out to your family and you! I only knew Devie from her stay at Mercy MC on 4 Main when I was volunteering. I was very happy to have met you both and she touched me in more ways than one, and I have remembered to eat things with more fiber :)! She's also encouraged me to finish the book I've started and I will think of her when it's completed. She's also one of the many reasons why I continue to volunteer. Just reading all of what Devie had accomplished makes me feel the world around those she has touched will never be the same. I wish your family and you only the best! Take care and God Bless all of you!

Craig,
I am so sorry to hear the news about Devie. Wow...words cannot express my sadness for you. You must be devastated. May God be your comfort and give you strength through this. You have been an example to me of a husband's true devotion to his wife through this battle. She is free now..but I know it still hurts.
God grant you comfort and peace.
