Dear Craig family.
Bob and I were classmates at Bosse HS. We ran around together our senior year. We enjoyed hunting and fishing together. We drifted apart when Bob went into the army and I the navy. We saw each other on occasion and enjoyed reminiscing about high school.
I am so sorry for your loss, Bob was a friend and I will cherish his memory.
Blessings for you and your family.
David Cook

Uncle Bob will always be one of my favorite people. My earliest and best memories always include him.
Riding horses in Mexico, Camping at Uncle Al and Auntie’s cabin, Fishing for catfish at Diamond Lakes and riding in his Corvette.
I will miss you very much.
