Craig and I became neighbor and classmate friends in 4th grade. A friendship that lasted 45+ years through midget football, high school, college parties, our wedding days,birth of our children and moments we each turned to each other for comfort and suggestions on dealing with life events.

A dear friend lost too soon but never forgotten.
