Craig was a caring gentle man that was always positive and shared his smile. Always honked or stopped to talk whenever I was outside and he was driving by our house. Early on he was very active in our Vilbig Community and loved to go out on the lake. He is missed and will always be in our hearts. Prayers to his family and they can count on the Vilbig family to always help out when needed.
So very sorry for Jerid & Jenica .. praying for their strength ~ comfort ~ understanding as they navigate this journey, far too early...

So sorry for your loss. We will continue to pray for strength and peace in the days to come.
Dear Watson family. I am very sorry to have read of the recent death of your loved one, Craig. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be very comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and also at Revelation 21:3-5. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones, as well as do away with all of the many causes we have for suffering, including sickness, pain and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts from the Bible will likewise comfort your family and will also ease some of your pain during this most difficult time in your lives.
