Margaret, my prayers are for God’s peace and comfort to be with you. I have fond memories of time spent with Craig and Ruth when she visited in Boca Raton.

It is said that friends are so that, even if you haven’t seen them in years, when you get together it is like you were just together yesterday. This is the way it was with Craig and us. The senior year at NCHS created a bond that was there the rest of our lives whenever we got together. Thank goodness for class reunions. We will miss him and join you in honoring a life well lived.
