I just learned today Craig is no longer with us--I'm so sorry to hear this. He was a good and thoughtful man, who's craftsmanship was impeccable. I'm so glad I was able to get to know Craig and Jerilyn in recent years, and to own one of Craig's fine handcrafted instruments. My prayers go out to Jerilyn and the family. Blessings always, Ken

Today, I learned from my Mom about the passing of your husband and father and I wanted to express my deepest sympathies during this difficult time. I will be thinking of you all in the days ahead. In high school, I remember all the times he helped with the band and what felt like moving all our instruments over the entire world. My parents also send their condolences to you and your extended families.

Words can't express my sympathy and sorrow for you during this time.
Craig had an endless curiosity about life. He enjoyed learning new things across his wide variety of interests, from technology to music. And his devotion to family brought joy to others around him. I take comfort in knowing he was surrounded by people he loved who will remember him for the rest of their lives.

Jeri and Chris- I am so sorry. Craig was a special man. I think of all of you every time I see my son Christopher's company logo which was kindly created by Craig.
