Craig I remember a day or two day before your accident you were in booking at the jail talking about fantasy football draft. I later had my dream come true and became and officer myself. Looking back I make it a point to stop in and talk with the jailers because I remember the lasting impression you left on me as well as many others about an officer being in the jail and talking with us. It was inspiring the way you conducted yourself. I recently had the pleasure of teaching Kylie in Dare and Craig you would be so proud of her. Karen has done a great job with her, she was such a great student and I did my best as a fellow officer to help teach her right from wrong and just wanted you to know I think she will be just fine!

Missing you like crazy for some reason today. Not a single song on the radio today has made me think of anyone but you. Love you and miss you so much.

Craig,

You are greatly missed everyday. I wish you were still here on patrol with us. Newton County truly lost a hero that day and you will never be forgotten.
Keep the streets of heaven safe my friend, one day we will meet again.
