Craig will be remembered as a charming, respectful, witty person.
The saddest moment is when the person who gave you the best memories, becomes a memory. May those memories bring you comfort and peace.
Life is a journey. We only have today. Tomorrow is not guarantee.
May it comfort you Gemma, Debbie and Bill to know that Heaven is brighter today, your wonderful Craig arrived that way.
He will be missed.
My deepest sympathy.

I remember working with Craig. His laugh, his wit and his ability to listen with true compassion. Craig was a great friend most of all. We made so many great memories and had so many laughs.
I will miss you my friend.
