    Michelle, I’m glad I had the opportunity to speak with Chris a couple of weeks ago. He has always been a good friend over the years, and a great brother-in-law, and I will miss him dearly. Please accept my condolences.

    Uncle Chris was the fun uncle, always defying Grandma and making me laugh. He took me camping and on road trips as a little girl, sharing his love of nature. While he was in college, he had a pet boa constrictor that I used to play with, and freak my grandma out. I acquired my love of The Rolling Stones because of Chris. His positivity and extreme sarcasm are what I remember most. Hopefully, you, Grandma and your sister (my Mom), get along up there! I love you!

    There are no words to express how heartbroken I am. I was supposed to come give him a kiss goodbye, but that was not meant to be. Chris was the best supervisor ever! I loved him so much, he taught me so much when I worked for him. I remember him helping me with picking out my first cell phone, teaching me about computers and giving me a dinette set for my first apartment. Chris was very loving and giving and he always made me laugh, I loved teasing him for using “big” words…oh how I miss him. He is not here on Earth, but he is with us in Spirit, please look out for us Chris. You will always be in my heart. I love you and I hope to see you again in Heaven!

    I worked with Chris very briefly at Monroe County. I see from his obituary we had more in common than I ever knew. He’s not one you forget easily. I’m sorry to hear this. My condolences to his family.

    So sorry to hear about this. Chris and I were flatmates while attending CCC. I swear I would have failed if it weren’t for him reminding me that a little studying might help. I learned a lot from Chris both academically and about life. And of course all of the lyrics to all of the Rolling Stones. Thought of you many many times over the years. Miss you dude, see you soon. soon enough 🙂
