The Lyle Reeves Funerals Name 

Craig and his wife Lindsay both believe in tradition and family values.  They chose the middle name of Craig's grandfather, Edgar Lyle Snodgrass and the middle name of his father, Robert Reeves Snodgrass, to come up with the name of the funeral business, Lyle Reeves Funerals Inc.  This was important to Craig and Lindsay to pay tribute to these two men.
