Many have shared their loving thoughts on Facebook and web site; here are a few.

Leslie Alagna McDonald-So sad! Craft use to double date with Roy and I. We had so much fun!

David Zimmerman-Thanks Karen for sharing.  My prayers tonight go out to Susan and family, wish I could personally show my support.

Bob Hines-Went on a college Spring Break in 1967 with Craft, Keith Hudson, me (Bob Hines) and my KU swim team buddy, Tom Ellis.  Had a blast in Pine, CO and Boulder, CO back when the top music was "Go Now" by the Moody Blues, and Tuloge's bar (sp) in Boulder had a nickel beer night special.  Great times.

I remember Craft, as many do, as a fun loving guy. He enjoyed sports, especially football!  He had many good friendships with his classmates.  I liked listening to his humorous, sardonic wit and slightly sarcastic smile and who could forget his piercing blue eyes.  Good Viking memories sigh...

Craft was a good dude. Quick and quietly witted, but you could learn something if you listened.  Have a good journey Clarke Clark.  The carpenter pounds his nails  RIP.

Craft was a great guy. We were in Boy Scouts togther and lived in adjoining neighborhoods as kids. I last saw him at Dennis Hilton's Memorial Service and we had a good visit afterwards. Life is short. Craft will be missed by many.
