    Sis and children,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your husband/father. My heart aches for the hurt and loneliness you are all feeling. Craig was a good guitarist:) I remember listening to him and sis jamming out and singing together, they sounded great:). He is in Gods hands now and singing many tunes up there with him, and watching over you all. I love you all your sis, Stacy

    He Only Takes The Best

    God saw you getting tired,
    And a cure was not to be.
    So he put his arms around you,
    And whispered, “Come to Me.”

    With tearful eyes we watched you,
    And saw you pass away.
    Although we loved you dearly,
    We could not make you stay.

    A golden heart stopped beating,
    Hard working hands put to rest.
    God broke our hearts
    To prove to us,

    He only takes the best.
