“My thoughts and prayers are with Craig's family as you go through this time of saying "goodbye - till we meet again." I had the privilege of working with Craig and Woodall Trucking over the years in scheduling many of his loads with New Fashion Pork. He was truly a gem to work with and one of the kindest guys I've met in this business! As many have said, "they don't make them like that anymore." Thinking of you all. Gail Maras”
