    Mrs. Craig was my third grade teacher at Biscoe Elementary. Her mother, Mrs. Hill gave me my first Nancy Drew book, The Secret of the Old Clock. I am still a Nancy Drew fan. I have really good memories of Mrs. Craig as a teacher. I know that her family will miss her and my prayers are with them.
