To the Schultz family: Craig was one of the nicest pers People you could meet. So friendly and outgoing with sincere kindness. We worked at The Associates Finance both in the Rockford and Belvidere branches. Craig was great in math and I never met anyone after Craig, who was in finance, that could adequately explain what the Rule of 70's method for calculating interest was but Craig could! I always remember him making sure the kids got their homework done and had patience of a saint as a parent. Craig loved Karoke and had a great voice. Still can hear him singing "what's going on" by 5 dumb blondes or whomever the group was..lol..Craig knew every song by every group that was ever done I think! Hope I got the group correct! Great guy and so glad he got to spread his wings in politics later on in his life. Deb Lyons Mike and Kristen. Rockford Il.

To the Schultz Family, So sorry to hear of Craig's passing away . Even though I had not seen him in a while it was good to talk with him at the class reunion and catch up on old times. He always was a nice person and always smiling. My heart goes out to the family. It was a pleasure to know him. Kristine Tarrant Grooms

Dearest Margaret and Family's of Craig, We are so very sorry for your loss. There are not enough words to bring comfort to you. Your loss is great. We to as friends of Craig are brokenhearted. Craiger was an inspiration for so many of us and he will be missed. Craig loved his Hometown and always had great aspirations for it. That vivacious smile he always had when he seen you just brighten any day. I know he had a relationship with our Creator and always had praises as well as quetions. He always took each step in his day with faith. Death has a bad name on earth but in heaven it is a housewarming party everytime the door opens. Craig is enjoying the gift of God's love as he is being greeted by all those who went before him. We can just imagine his father Jim throwing his arms around Craig and is showing him around the place we've only read about. Craig would want his family and friends to know God won't forget all of us who are grieving. God will leave this homecoming party early and enter into our dispair and pain providing strength and encouragement so we can uplift each other during this dfficult time. Our sympathies and condolances are reaching out to each family member especially you Margaret as Craig's mother. All our love and prayers Don & Gloria Peck
