Annette, I am so sorry for you and your family's loss. Craig was such a special person and will always be remembered as The Great Communicator and we will all miss him dearly. He was one of the rare friends that always kept in touch and sincerely cared for his family and friends. Distance was never an obstacle and the birthday cards and holiday phone calls continued through the decades. He had a heart of gold and you can be comforted knowing he will remain faithful to you and your family from heaven. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for your family - ever! Love, Karl(and Cathy) Schoppe
