So sorry to hear of your loss. Craigy was one of the site's characters, and out of the thousands of members we have, few are held in the esteem that he was. His contribution is already sorely missed from those of us who got to know him online over the past few years.

sorry for your loss, there is a strong feeling on here from the members that we need to do something to both remember him and help his family.

Decent helpfull man, enjoyed chatting about aviary birds with him..........



i am hoping the moderating team could combine some of the threads and ideas put forward by memebers

Hello its craigs wife, I'm guessing that as craigy was on here everynight, you should know what his likes and dislikes are. I welcome any suggestions that you throw in. Just the fact he's thought of so much is amazing.

Many thanks for having the courage to come on here under the circumstances :thumbs: i'm so sorry for your loss.
i believe charity starts at home and you choose what to do with it and if there's anything left over ...

Really glad you have come on and seen how your man was loved and respected on here , my opinion is a holiday for you and the kids , though whatever you think would benefit your family will be fine by all on here and there have been some good ideas , 1 thing I do know Craig would of loved is his son standing in the Stratford end cheering on his beloved Man.u. So maybe a day there would be 1 option (though preferably not against Arsenal as I'd have to want Man.u. To win that day lol) thoughts are with you's !

Craigyboy was a lovely, knowledgeable chap, so if there is any way the members can help celebrate his life, just let us know....

I take it thats a picture of Craig in his profile......mad innit i half expected him to have a big mop of dark hair and a joint hanging out his mouth !.................No cheap words from a stranger like me will make a difference,but as much as im sure family/friends etc are taking care of it................if theres anything yourself or your son need or want then as an admirer of a good man personally id feel good about helping.

My condolences to you and your family and i hope you have had a laugh and a smile at his going's on on here,he made a few of us laugh many times and was allways a wealth of knowledge in his help with our problems concerning our birds.I do also hope with time you can help us with what you and your children would want to do with anything raised as to us he came across as a family man and we'd like to help his family in any way we can with anything you or your children need,but only you know what you need so don't be shy :laugh: and were here to help :thumbs: .

I think the fairest and most realistic thing to do would be to set up a donation account or the like that we could all put a few quid in. Then let the family decide what they would like to do with the cash.

There's that website 'just giving' that seems to be for online fund raising, maybe that would be suitable.
