I have very fond memories of Chris and Stephanie at 15 years old. He spent a lot of time on the farm with us. A very gentle, polite, kind young man. He was Stephanie’s first love. When she told me about him, before he came to the farm, she talked about his puppy dog eyes. When I met him it was the first thing I noticed too. Once he spent time with us, it was like having a son, we had three daughters so was very refreshing lol. I know he is sadly missed by everyone who knew and loved him.

The memories of our "couples" weekend away right before that tragic day will be cherished by us forever. Your warm smile and that twinkle in your eyes has given me a lasting impression of the kindhearted and gentle soul that you were. Your love for life and the laughs we all shared as you and Rich blasted fireworks at 1AM across the lake while Steph and I ran screaming for cover was a night we'll never forget. Thank you. You've inspired people more than you'll ever know.

This is one of my favorite photos of Chris. This is what happiness looks like. Unconditional acceptance. Fulfillment. I'm so grateful for our reconnection. Chris set the bar in my formative years and shaped how I loved and accepted love for the rest of my life. The connection we shared was nothing short of special, intense and one of a kind. Chris's gentle and kind nature, despite the pain he carried with him, blew my mind on the daily. We were inseparable as kids and became inseparable again as adults. He told me I was his first love and would be his last love. He told me the colour of my eyes is, and has always been, his favorite colour ("prettiest shade of green" he'd say). He loved how my face fit so perfectly in his hand. That we "imprinted" (twilight reference) on each other. Soulmates. He believed we were in each other's heads so much that I knew what he was thinking. He said it took him so many years to get back to me that he'd never let me go again. We laughed (hard) daily - pure joy. Chris taught me so much about love, persistence and strength. We inspired each other to be the best version of ourselves. We wanted to be an unstoppable power couple. We had plans. I will spend the rest of my life wishing we had more precious time to live out our plans for the future but I'm so grateful for the time we did have together. Gratitude. ❤️ I love you Chrissy, my handsome.

Chris, I never thought in a million years this day would ever come....and yet here it is. If it wasn't for the amount of love and memories that you'vs touched the world with, I wouldn't be able to deal with this...You have been a great son, and I am thankful that we had this time together, short as it may have been. I will see you one day and we will have a laugh over all the grief and happiness we've shared as father and son. You have given me two beautiful grandchildren and for that , I thank you with all of my heart. RIP, I will never stop loving you and don't cause too much trouble up there. I love you Son, Dad.

Chris, I've shared so many memories with you, most were in high school. I can still hear you saying "you still my bestfriend" in a kiddy voice followed by funny kick and hand tap. No matter where we were we always did it. We distanced later in life as we got older but never have I forgot our friendship & good times, nor will I ever. I promise. May you fly high with angels "bestfriend". Xoxx Sending all my love and strength to Chris's family, children & girlfriend Steph. May be gone but never forgotten.
