Dear Mary and family, My heart goes out to you in the loss of Craig. Our memories go back a long ways to the Calvin College days, but I remember Craig as a friendly, fun-loving guy who seemed a wonderful companion to you, Mary. You are in my thoughts. May the sorrow of your heart be comforted by God's abiding peace and the condolences of friends and family. In sympathy, Garry and Nancy Reenders
