Jim Craig Serves As Son's Best Man

Jim Craig Serves As Son's Best ManIn 1986 I was lucky enough to marry my best friend and the love of my life, Sharlene "Charlie" Craig. I cherish that day not only because I found my soul mate but also because I had my dad standing next to me as my best man. As most of you know from the Olympics, my dad means the world to me.

"I wanted to thank you for expediting my recent order for the autographed USA Olympic jersey. It made it to my house very quickly and I was able to gift it before moving out to California. The gift was loved and the customer service was outstanding! I met Mr. Craig several years ago with my hockey team when he spoke at the Naval Academy. I was on the inaugural women's ice hockey team and his discussion inspired us to work hard with our underdog spirit and we've made outstanding progress. I've bought his book too and the jersey meant a lot to me. So, thank you again for the priority shipment and the inspiration!” Christine Dullnig, 2nd LT USMC
