Chris: although I have known you my whole life, we only started to get to know each other during the past year or so. I know that one of your wishes in life was to get to know your family and be a part of them. I am so happy that you achieved that goal. I really enjoyed your company over that time and will cherish it for the rest of my life. I only wish we had done it sooner. Everybody that I have spoken to that knew you said you were special, that you had a way of making people feel comfortable around you. I found out how true that was. You never had a bad word to say about anybody whether or not they were good or bad to you. You always found something good about them to point out to all of us. So long for now, "cuz." Take care of my father for me, as I know he is taking care of you, too. I'll see you on the flip side Chris. We all miss you a whole bunch.
