    To the entire Craig/McGhee Family God saw her getting tired and a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around her and whispered "come to me." With tearful eyes you watched her, and saw her pass away. Although you loved her dearly, you could not make her stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. Please accept our heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your mother & grandmother. Sincerely, Chris & Terrie Metz
