Best wishes to the Garrett family."

"Craig actually took me to my first "dress-up" dance back in sixth grade. I still have the picture; we look so young and innocent! I had no idea he had become so successful. I'm not surprised, though. He seemed special, even back in middle school. Even though I haven't seen Craig in decades, I feel very sad that he is gone."

This tribute was added by Susan Broadrick on 25th May 2012

"Craig was my "Big Brother" in PIKA at UVA.  Although we lost touch after college, I remember him for his wild wardrobe, free spirit and love of the fraternity.  Part of PIKA's Preamble reads "[f]or the establishment of friendship on a firmer and more lasting basis...." Craig lived up to his end of the bargain and we are all better off for having known him.  Phi-Phi-K-A"

"As election season nears, I remember Craig’s passion for politics.  He and I were usually on opposite sides when it came to most political issues.  Even when we weren’t, I would sometimes take the opposite position just for the fun of the debate with him.  Just as with politics, Craig showed passion as a teacher, colleague, and friend.  My thoughts and prayers go out to the Garrett family."
