    My heart goes out to all of Chris family and friends. Chris and I met several years ago, he helped me take care of my homes thru the years, I just enjoyed his company so much I would work alongside him on many occasions. My pups Chauncey & Stella just adored him sometimes we would sit out back and just play with them. I was so lucky to have had the opportunity to get to know him, kind and considerate, always willing to help in a pinch. Would have given you the shirt off his back, just can’t say how much he will be missed. God Bless Chris
