    Kim, i am so sorry for you and your families loss. Mr. Craig was more than our Teacher & Principal, he was more of a Father figure and I respected him for that quality. He was so open minded and caring, and I wished there had been more men like Mr. Craig throughout my life. He always tried to give the kids the benefit of the doubt and was so patient. Whenever I was being the, “stubborn & sassy mouth” Jacki Bernhardt, I usually was, he always tried to listen then act. He always used patience & understanding with the more than rebellious kids, and I loved that about him. My heart goes out to you and your wonderful family. He will be greatly missed & always cherished. May God keep his arms around your family during this heartbreaking loss and may Mr. Craig Rest in loving peace. Amen! Jacki Bernhardt Anderson

    Mr. Craig I have known you most of my life. We lived in Walker near each other. You were my Sunday school teacher, at Shady Bower Church and then my school teacher at Walker High School. I had a lot of RESPECT for you and your family. You will be truly missed. My PRAYERS go out to your family.

    Mr. Craig was one of my favorite teachers. He always told me, “Young lady, you can be anyone you want to be, but if you call me Rudolph again, you will be the queen of detention.” I was always his “queen of detention”. Fly high Mr. Craig!
