Your son was the love of my life. He was a great man. He took care of me. I miss him so much. He promised me we would grow old together. He was the kindess most adorable man I have ever met. He was my soulmate. Part of me died with him. I pray for all of you several times a day. Live life knowing you raised a good man who helped others and was always kind and loving. Im so devistated he will miss his first fathers day! God took our angle too soon.

I worked for Chris, several years ago. He is a kind and gentle soul. He was a dedicated to his career and strove to achieve excellence in every aspect of his responsibilities. He was loyal, intelligent, talented, patient, resourceful, creative and a consumate professional. He always remembered, others had flaws that should be gently molded, accepted and understood. He is a good man and I was fortunate to have known and served him.

I did not personally know Chris. I live a few doors down from him and saw him often riding his bike to and from work.He would always give a friendly nod and was always very polite. I am so very sorry to learn of his passing and my sincerest condolences go out to his family. May God bless you and bring you peace.

Chris and his family and friends are in my prayers this week, and in the days ahead. I worked with him on King's House's staff, and he was always so kind and upbeat with me. He nourished thousands of people with his delicious creations as they prayed and relaxed at King's House. His work was a great expression of KH's hospitality. Thank you, Chris, for your friendship and service. You will be in our hearts, always.
