Words from his caring mother:

Craig was an amazing young man who touched the hearts of all who knew him. He loved to talk about cars, especially expensive ones! He was a success in both his personal and professional lives. He loved working at Costco and the people he worked with. Next to his family, he cared about his friends the most, and would do anything for either. He was a Web Master who had a wide range of friends across the U.S. He did prove to his sister, that he could get a tan in cyberspace. Even those that knew him only online, picked up on his gentle nature and wicked sense of humor. Craig's journey home, on July 11, 2003, to be with the Lord, is sadness to those of us who love him, but we can only imagine the Joy he is experiencing. Especially since he is more than likely driving a Maserati right now!

Words from his Grandparents - Buricaga:

Craig was such a joy to us for so many years. He touched our hearts with such love. We enjoyed watching him, together with his cousins having such fun through the years, they will surely miss him. We will miss his smiling face coming through the door and asking if we were cooking his favorite meal. We will forever miss our loving grandson.

Words from his father Richard May:

Craig was a wonderful son. I am so glad that he grew up to be such a handsome, happy, friendly young man. His many friends that paid there respects to Craig at his memorial service is a direct reflection on his up bringing.

Folsom man, 20, killed in car crash

FOLSOM -- A 20-year-old Folsom man died in a single-car crash early Friday on Iron Point Road near Oak Avenue Parkway. The victim, whose name was not released pending notification of relatives, was westbound on Iron Point Road when he apparently lost control of his 1998 Mercedes-Benz. According to police reports, the car bounced off two trees before flipping over.

Sgt. Don Lee said officers responded to the accident just after 3:30 a.m. and reported that skid marks indicated a high rate of speed had led to the crash. The victim was wearing his seat belt, Lee said.

Police are awaiting a toxicology report, although there were no indications of drug or alcohol use.

The crash closed Iron Point Road until about 8:30 a.m.
