Thanking of you, Craig, as I do everyday. I spent this morning remembering our childhood together and all of our good times together as adults. I love you and miss you so much.

Happy Birthday Craig. I miss you buddy and though I'm going to be sad forever that we didn't get to laugh about old age together and commiserate about the current state of the world.. I will always cherish the fun times we had together. You made me laugh like no other. You were one of a kind. Love you always.

Craig, I still miss you so much. I am happy that there is place I can go to see pictures of you and read how much you meant to so many people. You will always be in my heart. Love, Carla

Still think of you and everything I learned from you. I recently quoted you...'if it doesn't pass the smell test', you know the rest. Ed and I were reminiscing about decorating your office when you turned 30, such fun times. Loved to see you blush and hear your laugh. You were taken from us entirely too soon. Miss you always!

Craig's dad and I are college fraternity brothers. As a parent, the pain of the lose of a child is a great burden to bare. Our prayers are with you.

Thought about you yesterday as I do almost every day when I say things like "does it pass the smell test?" I learned so much from you, miss your wisdom. I wonder if you ever really knew how loved and respected you were. Rest in peace my friend!

Remembering you on the special day of your birth. Still missing your presence at work (AFS). We often say 'Craig would know! Wish we could ask him'. Thanks for the insights and perspective you shared with me over the years. Even though you're not here, you continue to make contributions because of what you gave us while you were here. Best wishes to the Garrett family.

My deepest sympathies to the Garrett family. Craig was one of the first people I met at Capital Group. He was a wonderfully funny, intelligent, and articulate person. I pray that God gives the family strength and that Craig is at peace.

So sad to learn of Craig's passing from the UVA alum magazine. I only knew Craig through college but funny how after 25 years his spirit still feels just as strong here as it did every time he would pass by and say hello with such kind words and a great, open, welcoming smile.
Posted by Patti Steis on 6th September 2012
Dear Peggy, I was so sorry to hear about Craig's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you. We had so many wonderful times in college and during his Capital Group training stint in DC. Craig was such a caring and loving friend, and I just loved his infectious laugh. I'm sorry we fell out of touch. He really was a treasure. Love, Patti Miller Steis

I just received my Virginia Magazine and am so saddened to read about Craig. He was such a bright, caring and honest soul. I had been thinking recently that we might catch up at our upcoming 25th reunion. We will raise a glass to you, Craig. You will be missed.

Craig was an amazing person & colleague. I appreciated his mentoring and coaching & most of all his big heart. I pray he is at peace and wrapped in God's love. My deepest sympathies to the Garrett family.

Craig always brought great knowledge, perspective and humor to work. I have several fond memories of Craig, from the many laughs over lunch to being impressed every time he quickly found exactly what we were looking for from his vast archives. You are missed. My deepest sympathy to the Garrett family.

Dear Peggy, Carla and family - I have such fond memories of time spent with Craig - and Carla - when we were kids. Seeing the slide show brought many of them flooding back. I'm glad mom and dad could be with you at the service. May memories of Craig always bring a smile and warm your soul.
Posted by Vicky Staub on 25th May 2012
I hope you knew how much I appreciated your passion. You were smart & funny, and I enjoyed debating with you. Good-bye, friend.

To Craig's Family, We pray God's comforting arms surround each of you and give you peace in knowing that Craig has a new eternal life. Blessings to all.

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.
Posted by Susan Broadrick on 25th May 2012
I used to babysit Craig & Carla as they lived just down the street from us in Ada. They were such sweet children & I hear, now were very accomplished adults. Very sorry to hear & from all the Broadrick's our hearts go out to you all. We are also very sorry we will not be able to make the service in Ada.

My deepest sympathy to Carla and her family during this difficult time. I will always remember Craig as such a kind and caring big brother to you, Carla, as we were growing up. Lots of fun, wonderful memories. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

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.

To Craig's family, Craig touched each of us in such special ways. We enjoyed his wit, his intelligence and his generous spirit. It was a pleasure to know him and work with him. May all good memories fill the emptiness you are feeling now.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Garrett Family. I had the pleasure and good fortune to work with Craig in the Hampton Roads and Indianapolis offices. Craig was extremely generous in sharing his extensive knowledge with others. You are truly missed Craig!

It was so much fun to work with Craig. He always made me laugh in BRO and then when I would visit IND he would kill me with his funny stories as we stood out in the freezing cold. He was one of a kind and he will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family in this trying time. Happy memories will be what helps you get through this. Heaven is a better place now.

Oh, Craig. Just coming to this page is hard. Seeing your face, as I knew you then, and hearing this song is absolutely heartbreaking. You were such a wonderful friend, I am sorry that We didn't make it out for the Super Bowl. I will never forget you. I talk about you always. so many hilarious memories. Key West, Mardi Gras, Daytona, Bahamas..every Spring Break. Never gonna give you up..

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.
Posted by Rosie Garrett on 21st May 2012
A dear friend, mentor, and colleague, most importantly a brilliant, kind, and descent human being. Working alongside you, albeit miles away, for the last twenty plus years was a privilege. Rest in peace, I hope you knew how much we all loved and respected you! My deepest sympathy to the Garrett family.

I miss Craig very much. He's completely irreplaceable and can never be forgotten. I enjoyed the many times we reminisced of the old days and the old ways at AFS. I miss those opportunities to visit with him. Craig's commitment to purpose was evident in everything he did. I'll remember him in someway, everyday, always. My sincerest and deepest sympathy goes out to his dear family.
Posted by Tracy Konopinski on 21st May 2012
I was part of a new group that was invited to compliance meetings at AFS. We had paper referrals at the time and this was a chance for regular associates to meet with compliance to talk about a situation that we needed to resolve for a broker. Craig led that meeting and he was awesome! I learned from him and I looked forward to every meeting! A fantastic guy! Prayers for his family.

I had the pleasure of working with Craig for many years at American Funds in Indianapolis. I liked and respected him very much, and truly appreciated his dry sense of humor. Not a day would go by without Craig impressing many people with his knowledge. Craig made an impact and he will be missed! My thoughts are with his family and friends.
Posted by Bob Ross on 21st May 2012
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. I am a long time friend and fraternity brother of Lionel's.  My thoughts return to a 1971 visit in Ada on my way to Norman for the OU / Nebraska football game.  I remember two little kids filled with joy and excitement. These are the memories of Craig and Carla I wish to retain. May God grant you peace. Bob & Kathleen Ross
