I knew Chris as a former classmate that treated me with respect. Chris you were a very nice gentleman in junior high and high school. Even later after our high school years you always remembered me when we crossed paths. RIP dear friend. Prayers that God will be there for your Mom and Sis, Brenda.

I wasn't expecting to find this -did not realize Chris was ill. I'm very saddened to hear this I would have attended the funeral, if I would have know in time. I'm very sad for the family. I'm glad he had such a good and loving family. He was a happy and loving little boy. I look forward to seeing him again someday, so i can tell him how much i loved him and his sister.
