Dear Jenny, Holly and Steph,
Every year you shared your Christmas family portrait and news with us in the cards that arrived. I watched Christian, Steph and Holly grow from beautiful children to the accomplished adults they have become. I am shocked and so so sad about what happened to Christian. I can’t even begin to imagine the depth of your pain. I send you all my love and hope that you find comfort in one another and your beautiful memories of Christian to see you through this terrible time.
Love, Julia

Although I only met Christian once, it was enough to know he had our mutual Ryan Doerrfeld's back when he was going through a tough time. This man rode through two whole states and back with a pit stop at my house in Indiana both ways to Kentucky. You don't find friends like that very easily. Christian was supportive and a voice of reason for Ryan that whole trip. I'll never forget that day. Christian, I wish I would have gotten to know you more and it saddens me to know I won't be able to until my time is up. To the family you have my sincerest condolences. You raised a real man and I'm glad and privileged to have been apart of his life for just for a few days.

Rest in peace dude, you deserve it.
Til Valhalla.

I met Christian at his home years ago when I was on a visit from Ireland 🇮🇪 I bought him an Irish tricolour flag. Christian had a sweet innocence about him. A beautiful soul. Sending all the love in the world to his Mum sisters and family. May Christian Rest with the Angels. 💔
