Prayers to the whole family. Saying sorry doesn’t seem like it’s enough. Try to stay strong and remember all the good Chris brought into this world. I grew up with Chris, went all through school together, and there’s not one bad thing I could say about him. I remember riding bikes with him and Jason Howell, going from one house to another, eventually making our way to the playground at Gravel Hill. And all the other hangouts. Chris was so fun, and always nice, never said anything bad about anybody. I’m glad I got to spend some time with him at our last reunion. He will be missed.
