Sending thoughts and prayers to the entire family during this very difficult time. May the promise of Heaven and the love of Christ help you through this difficult time.
I will miss you sweet friend. I’m still in shock you left so suddenly! I hope you knew how much we loved you. We have been a part of the same work family for 16 years. There is no way we will ever find someone to fill your shoes. You have been there for each of us helping us with so much! You worked so hard and you have been such an awesome mentor to so many. When someone met you, they never forgot you. My thoughts and prayers will continue for Cindy and your family! Job well done Craig Pillard!!! Rest in Peace My Friend!

I recall the day Craig and Cindy met at a Kid’s Inc. practice we coached. I also remember well the day Craig wrecked my knee in wrestling. I’m sorry we didn’t stay in touch better. I’ll miss you, my friend, until we meet again!
