Chris, our friendship goes back over 30 years. Our days at Hardee’s, sharing a ride to classes at ISU after having breakfast at my house, not to mention just hanging out by the pool at your house. We lost touch with each other over the years with no help from my move to Phoenix. But luckily, social media helped us reconnect. You were a true family man. I very much enjoyed seeing your updates about the family. You will truly be missed.
