    Losing a mother is so sad but knowing she is going to a better place can bring some peace. Those of us who knew Mrs.Craft know she is with God.Many of you n=may not know me but when I visited my mother,Ruby Karl,every Sunday we went to First Baptis and then my mother,Mrs.Craft and I would go to lunch. Some pleasant memories. Mrs. Craft was a delightful person

    Kay, you and your family have been in my thoughts and prayers. You were a wonderful daughter and I know you loved your Mom very much. I think I only met her once but she was a sweet lady. Remember all the wonderful times and know she is now at peace. Love you, Judy
