Paulette, sorry to hear about Craig. You know I use to babysit him in Fostoria. I think of you often. I remember your birthday is in June. It had to be hard to lose a son.

I am deeply saddened to hear of the loss of Craig. I hadn't spoken to him for many years, but I know he was an awesome guy and a great dad. He was very protective of his friends and family and would always tell it like it is. My heart goes out to his daughters and his family at this difficult time.
