  1. I just recently found out what happened to Chris and I am so sorry for him and his family. Chris was a good guy who was trying very hard to make his life better……I am so sad it did not work out the way he had planned. He is in a better place now and I am happy his pain is gone. I love you Chris!

  2. Oh my goodness I just googled chris’s name and found tht my dear old friend lost his life so young and it puts a lot in perspective. To me obviously because we’re the same age and we grew up together. Truly GOD wanted him for a reason I just feel at a loss especially for his child. I don’t. Know how Chris turned out but I know being a father how important my role is in their lives. My heart goes out to Al, Chandra, and Michelle as you know me. Good luck as we cruise through life let’s remember this is temporary so enjoy it while it lasts. Life that is

  3. I just found out what happened.Im sorry for the bernaciak family’s loss.Chris was my best friend when i was younger.Im at a loss for words.I just hope that he finally has found some sense of peace.RIP chris.

  4. Oh Chris I am so sorry for how this worked out. Life has changed so very much since we had our last and final go round. Your Baby Micha is a baby no longer. She Is a litte 9 year old gir that misses her Daddy every second of everyday. I still can see her falling down to her knees then just crying over and over “My Daddy’s dead while sobbing uncontrollably. It’s a sight that seered into my soul. I blame myself often but ultimately your actions are yours not mine. I am just so heartbroken for our daughter. You were THEE BEST. Dad to Micha. You have given her a spiritual connection with nature animals and our Mother Earth. Remember when she would actually run and hug trees because “they art so beautiful

  5. She was your little ” nature girl”. And you were her everything. Micha nor I will ever be the same. We will however “adapt and someday overcome” one of your fave things to say. Just thinking out loud. Please watch over our daughter I worry for her.. i pray she has the tools to adjust to all the other curve balls life is gonna throw at her. Too much too fast too soon so sorry from the bottom of my soul I never expected this to happen. Please forgive me.

  6. To Mr. Bernaciak’s family, I’m very sorry for your loss. No matter how much time passes we still feel the loss of our loved ones and view death as God does, an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) May you find comfort and hope in His promise at Revelation 21:3,4 that shows soon there will be no more death, and we can see our loved ones again. Please accept my deepest condolences.
