Fae, Steve & family: My heart goes out to all your family & Craig's too. Fae, I've known you a long time. You raised good children who treasure you very much/what a blessing this is. Cherish all memories of family time you all enjoyed together. Craig is watching over you all until you all meet again. Craig is no longer in pain, he's at peace. He & Harold are together again on their new journey. Be close to Craig's children/their families and everyone. We love you all.
