Uncle Marty, Aunt Eve, Kevin, Deb, Mickey, Kathy, Chris, and Tina,
There are no words to express my sadness that I feel at Craig's passing. When I think of Craig all I can see is that big mischievous Robinson smile that he had. He was always teasing me sometimes till I cried and for that he will always hold a special spot in my heart as does each and everyone of you do. When the Sawyer's and the Robinson's got together, oh boy, watch out! One day I know we will all be together again and once ...more

So sorry Deb for your loss. Craig never had a bad word for anyone. Such a good man. We should all be like him. Thoughts and prayers with you and your boys. Cancer is an ugly thing.

Just so it is a little clearer. First off my father actually died on Friday morning. Services are Monday 6-9, Tuesday 2-4 and 7-9 with the Firematic service taking place at 7:30. With the church services taking place at St Johns Episcopal Church on Wed. Thank you everyone for your condolences. Just wanted to help try and make it a little clearer since some people seem to be confused by the wording in the article.

I apologize for any errors. The article has been updated, and hopefully it is more clear.
