Dear Mimi and Charlotte,

I am so very sorry that I was unaware that Craig had passed away following his valiant fight to remain on this Earth with both of you. To say that you were the "apples of his eyes," barely begins to express the love he had for both of you!

May your faith sustain you today and always. If I can do anything for either of you, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.

I miss you both!
