  1. Rest In Peace my dear friend. I’m going to miss your smiling face and the kindness that you have shown me. I know that you’re in God’s hands and everything is well.

  2. I am sorry to hear of Craig’s passing. He was in my clarinet section in the Kansas State Marching Band. Yes, we went to London with that band in May 1980, and made many memories. He was always a person that you could count on to get the job done – especially with his love of music. God bless his family and friends who miss him the most. Cherish all the memories that you have.
