Sad news from Cornell and Diehl

I just receive the news that Craig Tarler, founder of Cornell and Diehl pipe tobacco company has passed away. I had the pleasure of meeting Craig during a drop-in on their NC facility a few years back on a cold, rainy Saturday while heading to Gatlinburg. Craig was smoking away on his pipe and after a friendly greeting and a short tour, he passed me on to his son who gave me the full fifty cent tour. Upon my departure Craig gave me several tins of their fine products, and as I've mentioned before, they have been kind to by supplying us with most of our Taste Bud samples for the first six months of our promotion. Craig was a neat fellow and we are blessed to have had his influence in our industry.
Here's an official statement from Cornell and Diehl:
