When Chris left this world he left a large hole that no one will ever be able to fill. Chris was like a third son to my husband and I. He always referred to us as mom & dad. I remember when our oldest son was playing JV baseball and hit a homerun, Chris was in the batting cage and the ball actually hit Chris on the back of the leg. He proudly picked up the ball and brought it to us and said "my little bro" hit that ball.
Chris was an awesome man, whom I am proud to say I knew and loved. May God bless him and his family and all those that knew him and loved him.
