Oh Craig! Im so sorry Linda. 
Where would I even begin to tell a story from my past days with you. From years ago. Lots of great memories in Whiteland and also at the Daily Journal. Wow, the fun with Crouse, Saba, Harding, Lane, Gerton and the others were some of my best times because YOU were the craziest human. I loved them all. Last I saw you you stopped at a garage sale across the street from my Moms amd came to sit with us for 3 hours amd we laughed so hard. 
I know how much you loved Linda.  God bless you for all his antics. 
I kmow you loved your parents and now you are with them and a few others from the day. How lucky the angels are to get to meet you. 
Rest on heavenly peace amd hugs to you Linda and your family.

Craig .... you and Linda was one of the first couples that Mike and I would go visit and hang out with and just chill with.  Listening to Mike and Craig argue over every little thing was funny let alone just the silliness of them two together anyway. It's sad times like that we'll never share again. I've thought of you and Craig and the boys so much over the years. I'm sorry I didn't reach out and get hold of yall. I sure would of loved to seen you and little "Creggy" again. I miss them times, I miss them people but most of all I just am beyond blessed to call yall my family and friends. I love you Linda and Craig. I did then and I will always. God Bless You All 🙏
