I am sorry for your loss Linda. I truly enjoyed Craig while working at FSA. I remember the day we looked all over for you guys at Lake Sally at WEFEST because we knew you had air conditioning. We got there and you guys were sitting outside sweating like us! That was a hot week. I am thinking of you and keep you in my prayers as you adjust to a different way of life without Criag. God Bless You.
