  2. Dearest Deborah,
    I was so shocked to hear of the loss of Chris. I have so many wonderful memories of the four of us and great memories since.
    Never, ever had a sad , put-on face and always happy smiles. Whenever extra help was needed he was always there. He will never be forgotten and I’m sure he’ll be well taken care of by the Lord and other friends and family that have preceded him.
    I’m so grateful that you have Bear with you during this difficult time. Love him dearly, as you know he loves you and needs you as well.
    I love you girl very much, and if there is anything that I can do, in any capacity posiible, please call 828-775-3456 or e-mail me.
    Lots of love,

    PS – I tried my hardest to find John and was unsuccessful. I left messages to inform him of the tragedy with Chris. They were always great friends, as well.

  3. I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Chris. I only knew him through passing him in the hallways at work and saying hello or goodnight, but everytime we had that brief interaction he had a way of lifting my spirit with his positive bright smile and demeanor that made life seem good no matter how bad I may of been feeling. I will miss seeing him. He must of been a hell of a good man.
