"Craig Appel was the first bus driver I ever had the pleasure to ride with. Each  student on his bus was very important to him and he took great pride in transporting them. He was always cheerful and companionate. We became friends and would talk from time to time through the years though I never knew the depth of his depression. I am so sad he is gone and I pray he will rest in peace."

"Hi I also have had the pleasure to work with Mr Appel as we all called him I am so sorry for the loss of such a wonderful human being. I work with special education and years ago Craig did also as a school bus driver if most people could see this man with all the children so caring so gentle. I am so sad to hear of such a huge loss."
