My heart and prayers go out to the Craig family. I know she was very much loved and will be very much missed. Aunt Jerry always had a smile on her face and a kind word for everyone. Her picture reminds me so much of Grandma Ross.

Dear Mary and Dick, Phil remembers weell Jerry visiting the Eding household when she wasa a child We are sorry for your loss. Phil and Mary Jane


My thoughts are with the Craig family. I find comfort by turning to the bible. Psalms 34:18 "Jehovah is near to those broken at heart and those crushed in spirit He saves."

I am so sorry that I was unable to attend Aunt Jerry's funeral. After dad past away Aunt Jerry and I were able to spend some time together reminiscing over some old photos. Aunt Jerry will sure be missed by everyone that knew her. She was always so sweet. Love Sonja (Sony)
