Craig was one of the best friends i have ever had. We had some really awesome times together. We could also fight better than i have ever seen anyone esle fight. Everyday i think about him and miss him and wish i had a chance to say goodbye. I am so proud of Craig for fighting for what he believed in. Now i read articles and look at pictures of the two of us and wait for the day we will be together again. Close

Dear Shirley, Brad, Kevin, Jamie and Jay,
Craig was so brave in serving our country. I appreciate so much the sacrifice that he made for all of us. Craig was such a sweet boy and had such a sweet nature. I want you to know that I will never forget him. He will remain in my thoughts and in my heart forever. I read somewhere that everytime we think of a loved one that has passed on before us, they can feel it and it makes them happy. I think of Craig constantly and remember him. I believe that you will be with him again someday. What a happy celebration you will have with him then. Close

To Craig, / Carolyn Hodgson (friend of Danielle )
Craig, it was an honor to meet you at Danielle's house because she and her mom had told me so much wonderful such about you. I too had thought you you two would get together, but in God's plan it was not meant to be. God knew what a wonderful man you were and wanted you to be in heaven with him, so that you would have no more sorrow and pain. I know that you are rejoicing with Him right now. Thank you so much for your sacrifice and your willingness to give us your all. May God give your family peace knowing that you are with him. I admire you so, Carolyn Close

I'm so sorry about Craig! he was one of my brothers best friends and he is taking this pretty hard! I feel really bad for him cause I don't have anythihing to help him! I'm sure a lot of people are I know I am! He was a great guy and he was always at our house him and Shaffer, Bouge, Thrasher, and Sean always where together. Until they graduated and seperated in their ways! He became part of our family and I am so sorry for this lost one! Close
TO my cousin, a TRUE American Hero! / Stacie Marcotte (Cousin)
To my cousin Craig,
I didn't know you very well and I haven't seen you since you were about two years old. But, I want to say that I am so proud of the man you became and the lives of the people you touched in your short time on this plant will never be forgotten! I have spent most of the night on this website learning as much about you as I can. I guess it's my very small way of making of for lost time and I'm sorry that this is what it took to get to know you.
To my Aunt Shirley,
First, I want to apologize for the distance that has formed between us over the years. It seems we get caught up in the day-to-day and forget the people and family that should be the most important things in our lives. At the moment my mother told me about Craig, I realized that I needed to do whatever it takes to stay connected with my family no matter where they are for my sake, my son's sake, for all our sakes. You are all my roots and I will never forget that. I am deeply sorrowed that I never got chance to get to know Craig but I'm hoping I can make up for that by reuniting with your family as well as Aunt Trish, Uncle Steve, Aunt Margaret and their families by getting to know them. I hope that all of you will feel the same way I do and help me and my mother reunite with your families. I commend your strength in supporting Craig in his choice to serve our great country amidst all the dangers that he would face. I can only imagine, as a parent, how hard that was and the constant worry. It's alot more than I could handle, that I know for sure. But at the same time, I couldn't imagine a mother being more proud of her son. I look forward to seeing you all again in the near future.

Loss of a great friend and a great american. / Sean Miller (High School Friend(Ugly Twin #1) )
Craig was one of my best friends. He was one of the guys, and a guy that I will never forget. I had alot of fun with Craig when we were in highschool. He used to talk about what he was going to do when he was done with the Marines. Craig and I talked about it on more then one occasion, and I will gladly do my part to live as much of it for him as I can. I knew alot about the guy. He was a great kid. There are alot of memories about Craig that I will never forget. Craig will always live on in the hearts and memories of all that knew him. We all know how amazing Craig was and I am blessed to have had the chance to be he friend. We love you Craig. Close

I didn't know you, but you could have been my friend, we could have shot hoops together, played ball, or even just hung out and talked about nothing (as guys do).
I'm 31 from England and yet just browsing this site I feel as if I needed to say somthing. Thank you for being who you are, thank you for standing up and doing what you felt was right. While we may never fully understand the reason we (UK and US) went to war in the first place, thank you for being doing your duty for the cause.
To Craigs mum, I pray God gives you the grace to go on, nothing catches God by supprise, so take heart you will live on, and for Craig you will LIVE STRONG !! Close

my husband was a navy corpsman / Julie Eames (none)
I lost my husband Derek Eames this past October 2nd. Derek was in the navy, he had just become a corpsman, a medic for the marines. My husband was 28 years old and we have a 3 year old son together. My husband died 3 weeks before he was scheduled to deploy to Kuwait for a year. We lost him in a car accident. I will pray for you and your family. It's so tragic when they are so young, so many "what could've beens" God bless and hang in there. We military families all seem to have a common bond.......we all are lucky to have known some of the greatest people on earth. Please visit my husbands site

Thank you for your sacrifice / Jen Beving (passerby)
I was just passing by, my mom created a site for my sister (Danielle Beving) she would be the same age as Craig and was killed a year ago. I want to say thank you to Craig and all the members of the armed forces. And in your family's time of sorrow, know that it gets better. Your loss is so recent that it pains me to think of going back to that time, but it does get better. I wish you the happiest holiday possible... Close
