Chris was a part of my life for 15 years. I just texted him in Sunday, the 20th to
See if he wanted to meet for brunch. I was saddened to find out today that he passed on the 13th. I was there for him when he went into the hospital several years ago, and then developed jaundice, it showed it to celebrate his 40th birthday. When I met Christopher 15 years ago, we went out a few times, and then decided to be friends. Christopher it was always special to my heart... we always kept in touch and he would always say you were the only person that came at my 40th birthday to the hospital. I recently reached out to him because I was looking for a house to buy and he didn’t get back to me for days. Question myself as to what I could’ve done to be a better friend. But I left Christopher it out as well. He was a good man, and people loved him, and he will never be forgotten. I’m so sad that I didn’t get to say goodbye. But somehow I’ve had covered he’s looking down from heaven and that he knows. I will always love Youn Christopher. You are in my heart and soul forever. 💗 Wendy Ann

Under the wide and starry sky
Dig the grave and let me lie
Glad did I live and gladly die
And I lay me down with a will

This be the verse you grave for me
Here he lies where he longed to be
Home is the sailor home from the sea
And the hunter home from the hill

Rest in peace Christopher, your suffering is over.
