  1. There are people you meet in your life and maybe never get to really know who in some way have a lasting influence. Craig wanted to teach his life's lessons to those willing to listen. He was a wise man and as humble and patient as a New York bred boy can be. In the brief moments I paused to listen, I learned a lot from him.
