    I was grieved to see the obit in the KC paper. I really enjoyed working and playing golf with Craig. We had some good laughs together. This was in the early 1970s. I had talked with Craig a few years back on the phone. I know his family and friends will miss him. I can still see him laugh. We had some good laughs and I remember some of the stories. Once we were playing golf and this real old guy asked to play with us. Well hr told us every stroke we did wrong. Near the end this old guy hit his ball and it bounced off a tree right back to where we were standing. Craig and I got a good kick out of that. My best wishes to Sandy and his children.

We didn’t know Craig well, but know he must have had the patience of Job with all the little ones running around the house everyday. He will live on in your hearts and memories.
