Craig couple reunites through hardship, faith

As Barbara Jean Sonntag sees it, her husband Frank has nothing if not a good sense of humor. It doesn’t take long to see what she means. At their Craig home Monday morning, she lists off the names and ages of their five children — Jeff, 51; Lisa, 50; Richard, 49; Danny, 47; and Cathy, 43—when Frank chimes in.
