I want to extend deepest condolences to the entire Craig family. Our family greatly enjoyed Larry's column in The Todd County Standard newspaper. I was blessed to know him as a child when we rode Mr. Ed Segers' bus together to Clifty School. It seems he left us too soon, but God has a perfect plan for each of us. We will see Larry again, but he will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
