Craig was a special person. I remember him being like a big brother to me (which I appreciated, having only sisters). I specifically remember our annual Christmas Eve celebrations where Craig was always the life of the party. As my parents already mentioned, he turned us on to James Morrison (not of The Doors) and those Christmas albums are still among my favorites. He was very kind to my young girlfriend-to-become-wife and made her feel at home in our crazy family. So much so that we wanted him to be a part of our wedding party as a groomsman. Craig was a good man. We are better for having known him.

To All who Knew and Loved Craig

Craig was like a light that could brighten the darkest of spaces. Even though ill, he was still sensitive to the needs of those around him. A special memory is sharing the music of an Australian trumpeter named James Morrison. One of Craig's favorite pieces was "Amazing Grace". We would listen to Morrison play the song over and over, not only for the precision with which it was played but also for a message that struck a chord with our very souls. Craig may be gone but never forgotten. His presence, no matter how short in our lives, brought us experiences and memories that will forever be cherished.

Dear Margaret, Ron, Sue, Andrew, Jenny, Garry, Claire, Lee-Ann, Steven, and the extended Walters family,
It is with deep sadness that we learned of Craig's passing. We are thinking of you and remembering the good times we had with Craig. We know that he is at peace and no longer in pain. He was a wonderful father to our wonderful grandchildren, and we know he will watch over them. RIP Craig
