My heart breaks for you who loved Kraig. I send sincerest sympathy. Our Heavenly Father promises that He will bring our loved ones back to life. (John 5:28,29). There will come a day, soon, when He will restore the Earth and do away with death and sorrow permanently. (Rev 21:4) I truly wish you peace and hope.

Kraig and my Dad drove Matt's cars (Faw Motors) around NE and became buddies, when my Dad passed away in 2011 Kraig then became my friend. We just fit well, I will miss our visits. God bless you, Kraig.
