    Debbie and Maria,

    I’m so very sorry that Chris had to leave us all so suddenly. He was such a kind and caring person, a gentleman at all times, and I count myself fortunate to have been his friend.

    Having seen the pictures taken over a lifetime too short, I could see in his face the love and devotion he had for you both. I wish I could magically ease your pain, but I hope you will find comfort in knowing how much he loved you.

    We’re here for you always, please call on us for anything or stop over any time.

    I am so deeply saddened to hear of Chris’ passing. I knew him since grade school & always enjoyed his company nor will I ever forget the many fun times we all had…he was like I’ve said many times before, “a one in a million type of guy”, one of the kindest, funniest & caring people I’ve ever known. My deepest sympathy to Debbie & Maria. Please if you need anything or just want to talk call me. xo

    Deb & Maria,
    It’s been quite a few years since seeing you … but you, Chris & Maria have always stayed on my mind over the years. I don’t even know if you will remember me (Chris used to work with my ex Mike S.) but I just found out about Chris & my heart just broke for you both & everyone who knew & loved Chris. I have always admired the relationship that you & Chris shared and the absolute love you both had for Maria. I am so truly sorry for your loss and wish there was something…anything I could do to take away your pain! My thoughts & prayers go out to you!

    My heartfelt sympathies,
    Leslie (Allen) Thomas

    Hi Dad. It’s coming up on six years since you’ve passed and it’s never any easier. I’m glad you weren’t around to see 2020, you aren’t missing anything. But it’s worse without you. Thinking of you always. I hope you’re proud of me.

    Love and miss you,
