Good-Bye, Again

A few years ago a childhood friend of mine, Craig Long, died of a heart attack at an age far too young. Doing Craig's funeral was one of the toughest things I have ever done. He loved people and he loved life. I was blessed to have him as a friend.

These are Craig's two girls: Ava and Eve. Craig never met Eve.
Tragically, Craig's wife, Allison, died last week in an accidental death. Her funeral and burial was today.
Allison was a wonderful woman who loved Craig and their daughters. When I first met her she was filled with the joy of being married to the love of her life. The next time I saw her she was an exceptionally strong mother who was dealing with the loss of her husband. She will be missed by many, especially her daughters.
Sometimes life simply isn't fair or understandable. Craig and Allison leave a legacy with these two girls.
I invite you and encourage you to pray for Ava and Eve and for their families.
