Please accept our sincere condolences at the loss of a wonderful man, Craig Schlottman. I have known Craig since he was a toddler, watched him grow into a fine young man, husband, father, grandfather and friend to everyone. He comes from a wonderful family of Schlottmans, Denns and Adays -- families that I will always love and admire. Rest in God's Heavenly peace now, dear friend Craig. We will always remember your warm smile and gentle heart. Our sympathies and prayers to the family... David & Barbie
