Based on his unique perspectives of patient care, grief and bereavement recovery, Craig authored the 2021 book Efforts to Make a Difference: Reflections of a Hospice Chaplain. He says that ďThis collection of testimonies, memories, insights and short stories is an exercise in preserving some of the many experiences that I didnít want to forget, sharing them as a written testimony of Godís handiwork. They are an ongoing written witness to glorify Godís awesome work through the power of the Holy Spirit in my life and in my efforts to help others."
Craig is the son of Gerald Eugene and Clarice (McGee) Falkenstine of the family of Jerome Lewis and Victoria (Martin) Falkenstine of Valley Point, Preston County, WV.
