I never knew this page existed. Craig was the best man when I got married (to my ex husband) and he ended up becoming the husband of my maid of honor (my best friend). They met at our wedding and got married a year later. He was an exemplary officer, friend, son, husband, and father. Always thinking of Maria, Chad, Brent, and other family members.
