I was an observer at the service today. My thoughts are that it not the number of friends who show up but rather the quality of the ones that do. I witnessed three of the most devoted friends that I have ever seen show up and offer respect and a proper send off for Mr. Crafts. Thank you for your service and condolences to his three comrades.
