An UPDATE on Br. Craig has been published on our blog. Please click here for access.
On behalf of the Brethren of Amity Lodge, our thoughts and prayers go out to Brother Richard Craig - a 50 yr member of our beloved Lodge.
For those that are unaware, Br. Craig suffered a stroke on Tuesday (February 24) while working on his truck. As of this moment, he is being treated at Central DuPage Hospital and plans are underway for him to receive additional care and therapy once he's deemed ready to do so.
What you need to know is this: he is lucid and still has the same personality and sense of humor he's always had. That said, the stroke has affected his left side significantly including feelings, motor functions and vision. He was cognizant enough to give us permission to share this information on the web and via a Call-Em-All. He is also appreciative of anyone willing to visit but understands if you choose not to.
The impact Br. Craig has had on Amity cannot be overstated. In fact, it can be argued that Amity Lodge would not be here today if weren't for the efforts and assistance of Br. Craig throughout the years. This is a man who has given so much and asks for nothing in return. Please join us in wishing him well and a speedy recovery!
