I am so sorry to hear of Craig's passing. He was always so kind and good to my mom over the years and I have many fond memories from visiting the Blackshire house when in school with Craig Jr, Missy and Sherri. I know that Craig is wearing his crown now and most likely giving mom a hard time too, but he will be missed by many. To Milwee, Craig Jr, Missy and Sheri, please know that i send my love, thoughts and prayers to all of you during this time.

For Uncle Craig.. For every kind word you ever said For every prayer you ever prayed for me and my children (I'm sure there were MANY) For every single time I came inside your home and was offered food or drink or a joke ( thanks especially for teaching me how to pronounce Worcestershire sauce, to love horseradish with roast beef, and to enjoy Italian food with homemade meatballs) For my godfather...who would joke about my clumsiness..who always knew that if I was up to no good, his daughter was too ( we always ended up on crutches or tattooed at the same time) For teaching me the secret to really amazing buttercream For being there and taking a photo when I caught my first fish I light these candles for you and your family and all the ways you will be missed... 🙏 ❤ Sheri , Missy , Craig Jr. & Aunt Milwee... All others in his immediate family.. My prayers are with you
