My sincere condolences to Craig's family . He was a part of my film family for years and I loved working with him. He was smart , funny, charming, a hard worker and I was thrilled to have him on my team . I left film just before Craig went into his new path of teaching but we stayed in touch because he would often venture into Canvas , the art gallery we started and that is 16 years old.
I loved hearing about his teaching , those were some of the luckiest kids I know. To have a teacher that understands the world and the arts as well as the school curriculum . Well that doesn't happen very often.
I am truly heart broken hearing of his passing and very sad that I missed his funeral .
I can't believe that I won't see that smile coming at me again , coaxing my to come back to film...I coaxing him to get back to painting. We met when he was still painting and living in Liberty Village...he was a god send to me . A fresh young set dresser that so wanted to work on projects and read the scripts and had a great eye. Well that didn't happen often.
I have not been able to stop thinking of him and hearing his laugh in my head.....I am so so sorry for the loss of Craig , he was a good one and should have been around a really long time. Please accept my prayers and thoughts at this very difficult time.

Dear Boland Family,
I’m so sorry for your loss. Mr. Boland was the greatest, most compassionate, funniest and most patient man and teacher I have ever met/had in my entire life. Him being my teacher last semester was an absolute honor. He brought so much brightness and laughter into my life and I can’t put into words how grateful I am for him being the light during my darkest times. He was always so kind and open minded with me, he pretty much did one of my assignments because he knew how much I didn’t believe in myself to do it right and he called my throw cushion the “ Romina Pillow” and every single time I look at it, it reminds me of the kind and amazing man and teacher that I was blessed to have. I miss him so much and I just can’t believe this is real. My heart goes out to each and every single one of you. I will always keep him and each and every single one of you in my prayers. He was the best human being I knew. Rest In Peace Mr. Boland, thank you for absolutely everything. May your lightness shine eternally throughout our daily lives.
