    I am shocked and saddened to read of Craig’s passing. He was a friend and inspiration while I was working at VU! My prayers for her family.

    I am so sad to hear about this. Especially a year late! I was a student with Craig and Mona, had many lively, enjoyable talks in the old student union. Does anyone know how Mona is doing?
