I never knew my uncle Craig. My father (his brother Mac) spoke of him quite often, and I see that they were close in age. I picture them as "partners in crime" when they were kids.

Several of his family members have reached out to contact me even though they don't know me, and this tells me the kind of man my uncle was. I am sorry that I never got to know him, and my condolences to his family on the loss.

I remember things like camping, him teaching me how tow change a car transmission, which I later used to fix my leaky vans gas tank. He was the best dad in the world!

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Waskiewicz family. I pray that God will give you the strength during this difficult time. I know Dad is in heaven with Jay and is in no more pain. I loved being in this family for over 30 years and was a great man, who took me in from day one. He made me feel like a daughter than just a daughter in law. He will be missed dearly.
