You were just fun! You were loving. I NEVER heard a bad word from you about anyone, unless it was a customer not paying their bill, lol. Your eyes would light up, your smile broaden and your freckles adorable.

I have loved you ever since I met you. It was easy to do and I am so sadden by the hand life dealt you...

I will miss and love you forever ...

A kiss goodnight, not a kiss goodbye.

I remember DeeDee always making me feel welcomed at the Craig household. No one could forget the way she mixed that Kool-Aid. When I say this, I am speaking on behalf of me and my family. We love you all and want to let you know how much your family has meant to us as we grew up together. I always knew she would listen and be open to anything I had to say.
