Craig was a fun, bonus big brother when I was a teenager! He was always willing to take Tim and I out on his boat! He patiently taught me to waterski and was so proud when I got up on the second try, though he did forget to tell me to let go of the rope. He was a good son to Theron and Nevabelle, honoring his promise to always take care of his mother. He was sitting with his dear mother in her room until shortly before she passed away. I’m thankful I was blessed to spent that time with him. RIP brother.
