Craig Neil Bredthauer

My cousin Craig passed away last week. Craig and I had been really close growing up since we were only 8 months apart. I had to speak at his funeral yesterday. It was a bitter sweet/talk. It was good to remember some of the good times we had, alot of people laughed as I told about some of the stuff we've done. But it is also hard to say good-bye to someone who has been a friend my whole life.
Below is his obituary.

That is so sad. I'm very sorry for your loss. I have a very difficult time with the loss of young lives. Know that we love you and we're here for comic relief if you need us :)
