Craig, your humor got everyone laughing in a room. If it wasn't your silly jokes, it sure was your contagious laugh. One memory that will always crack me up was when we were sitting in Tim Hortons, you, Tina, and I. I wasn't quite finished my coffee but you had the urge to shove little hand into my cup and yell "MY GERMS"..poor little hand felt that...but the laugh was all worth it! You are greatly missed everyday, but will forever live on through cherished memories. I am so happy my daughter had the chance to meet you, even just for a short time. I love you Craig. As you'd say "booga booga".

I will never forget all the memories. They say after a while, you may forget the sound of a loved ones voice.. There's no way that I will ever forget yours. I love you Craig. No words will ever describe the level of loss we have experienced. I wish I could talk to you & little hand one more time...

Hi Craig,
it's long time ago, about 12 years, we've met eachother the last time. I've never thought it could have been the very last time, but, unfortunately, it was...
Next year we'll come to Canada and I was so happy to meet my canadian family... But now it's weird somehow because you're missing.
But, little cousin, you're still living in my memory. When I close my eyes I can see you pretty clearly, 12 years younger, laughing and bothering Sabrina :-). I can remember our family trips with the houseboat and BBQ at Opa's or your dad's house. And I guess we've all had a very good time together.
Now it's time to say good bye :-( . But although your body is not here anymore I'm sure you've never left completely. You're living in our minds and you're somewhere, counting the stars or making some music in another world we cannot imagine now. Or maybe you're talking with Oma about that crazy world. Who knows...
But the day we meet again will come and then we can go on with BBQ and houseboating :-).

Say hi to Oma and tell her that I miss her!🥀

Lot's of love and hugs to you, wherever you are,
and of course, to your family !!!!! 💐

See you, little cousin 🙋‍♀️
