    Dear Amiee and family, I was saddened apon hearing that Chris had passed away. I’ll aways will remember Chris as he was when we were in Boy Scouts together. Chris would act tuff than he would give you a big grin. I know that he sometimes he would drive you nuts when he would lash out at the world, he was just trying to find out where he fit in. Now his soul is with God,his troubles are over and you will know that he’s at peace. God be with you in your time of need.

    My brother Chris was such a great guy. There were so many things I wanted to say at the funeral but I was a mess that day. Next to June 12th, 2014 that was the hardest day of my life. But I don’t even know where to start. Chris was the best big brother I could ever ask for and still is! He would always take me n Jake out to drive go karts, he taught me how to work out, how to shave, he gave me advice about girls…in a lot of ways Chris was like my dad since my father passed away in 2000. He was such a influential part of my life. My love for Tupac and Bone Thugs~N~ Harmony stemmed from him. He was just such a deep, intelligent, opinionated person. He was also by far the toughest, bravest man I have ever met. In my 24 years of knowing him, I’ve never even seen him cry. I just know that Chris still had so many plans in life. Its crazy he had to leave so soon. Most of all I know he misses his son Christian. That is his pride and joy. I’ve had so many deep conversations with him….I just wake up every morning thinking that this can’t really, seriously be true. But I have to stay strong for him and the rest of the family cause that’s what he would want. I think about him constantly but I honestly believe that I will see my big brother again someday. R.I.P Big Brother 2/3/1978-6/12/2014
