I met Chris at Capital One, we worked together back in early 2000 for a few years. Of all the people I've met through work, Chris was one of my most favorite. He was such a joy to be around, he was great co-worker and most importantly he was a great friend. My thoughts and prayers to his family.

I will always miss my friend.

There are no words to express the joy my childhood bud brought me and my brother and cousins. We all walked home from elementary and jr high school together often laughing at sometime that Chris said or did! The connection of the Pleasent Grove community provided a foundation of God, love and togetherness. A true village. Sleep easy my friend! Condolences to the family and prayers
God Bless you all.

We would have Polo shirt battles. We would go an entire month and not wear the same Polo shirt. We came to a conclusion that we needed to give some of them away. It was a draw. It seem like yesterday that you and Malcolm came for a visit. RIH
