Jeff and Darla, My heart aches for both of you. I couldn't believe the news when I read it in the paper this morning. Craig was always a nice young man. He always had something to say and said it with a smile. He looks so much like you, Jeff. I bumped into the two of you guys several times while teaching in Seymour...at lunch and the hardware store. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, including Kelly, during this terrible time. Debbie Carroll
