Hello colleagues and friends,

I know many of you have heard the sad news about the passing Dr. Doug Craig. I wanted to get this out to those who might not have heard. I know he had many interests. My dealings with him and Ruth were at the annual North American Black Fly Association meetings held at various locations for the last sixteen years. His research and the sharing of his and Ruth’s travels were always valuable contributions to our meetings. I know many in our group feel the same as myself – I was privileged to know him and considered him a friend.

A link to his obituary is provided where, I know Ruth and her family, would welcome any comments from our group.
