Pastor Craig visited my dad when he was sick many times. He was such a kind And caring person. I gave him money for leading the service at my dad's funeral which he gave back . He said he would only take enough for gas money for his daughter.

We have such fond memories of our years at MC Presbyterian under the ministry of Ken Craig. My children grew up there; and he officiated at the wedding of my daughter in 1992. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
