Craig & Family,
Our deepest condolences to you and your family at this difficult time, Although, we have not had the pleasure of meeting your mom in person, when I went to the service at Carnell’s funeral home and her friends and neighbors were telling happy stories about your mom and all their loving memories , and after working with you, Craig for many years, and hearing all the stories you told me of your mom, I , felt like I known your mom for a long time. She sounded like a fun, loving lady, who loved life and above all, loved her family, and that in itself is a blessing. Keep all your memories of this beautiful lady, that you called your mom and know that she is now at peace. Craig, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Thinking of you, Kathy and Kevin Hunt
