When Craig died five years ago today he could not have ordained that his memory would loom large during this week each year as the award in his name is presented at today`s Convocation ceremonies of United Theological College.
He would not have chosen, for Mom`s sake at least, to die so close to his birthday, either, this Sunday – yes, Mother`s Day, just like it was in 2007.
But it is what it is.
Skies are considerably brighter in Montréal today.
While the sting of the first few years of grief has lessened considerably, this is one of those days when missing Craig is quite a bit more intense.
