  2. Dear Mary Ellen,
    I am so very sorry for your loss. When I think of Craig I only see him smiling. He was such a great friend to Wheels, and always so warm, welcoming, and great to talk with whenever we met. Both of you always brought good times to Nunda Blvd.. I am sure there is going to be a great card game in Heaven come next Monday night.
    Blessings on you and the whole family,
    Susie and Francis

  7. My fondest memories of Grandpa are hanging out at his house and talking about horses, the lake, trains and numerous other things. He was always so easy to talk to and made me feel so loved. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the best Grandpa ever. I will miss you terribly. Until we meet again………

  8. We were so sorry to hear from Mary Ellen about Craig passing on. We met Craig and Mary Ellen in Florida many years ago and have retained our friendship all these years. We have fond memories of Craig, his humour, his knowledge and inquisitive mind, his love of baseball and friendly disposition. He always welcomed us into their home when we stopped to visit on our return from Florida. Our thoughts and prayers will be with Mary Ellen and the family during this very sad time.
