    Loved attending RCIA at St. Francis with Craig and Lisa. He always made me laugh. My son Josh and he were mischievous together at those meetings. May his family find comfort in their memories.

    Craig was a great person, very passionate on many subjects and most of all, a Good Friend to me.
    I will miss the many discussions we had during the countless lunches or dinners we shared. The smile, laughter and the way he always seemed to put me at ease when hard subjects came about. CRAIG, the world was a better place with you in it!
