I had the privilege to work with Craig for over a decade while at TNT. He lived life, loved life and always wanted everyone around him to do the same.
I was deeply saddened to get the news earlier today. But as the stories poured in and the memories and photos were posted on social media and the like, I couldn't help but smile and laugh.
I have a few of my own stories...but I'll never forget how he helped me in my first-ever feature story that I produced with him in Orlando on a young Shaquille O'Neal. He wanted everyone to succeed...players, coaches, and of course those who had the joy of working alongside him.
I will dearly miss him.
