Lissy, I miss our daily sports talks and about our hopes that one day our Kings would be good again. You had a huge heart and were very generous. You will be missed but not forgotten.

Goodbye my good friend, you were like a brother to me at work. We had some great times together, you are gone, but will not be forgotten. I'm so thankful I had time to get to know you and was able to spend time with you as a part of my life. I only wish we had been given longer. I know you are now pain free, running and walking without a limp, and enjoying yourself standing at the side of our Lord and Savior.

I grew up in the same small town with Kris, we played baseball together in high school and went to OIT together. He was always positive with a smile on his face. Rest in peace my friend,

Kris we never had a chance to see each other alot before the miles seperated our families. But I am so glad Carol and you found each other and you both had such beautiful children together that will bless this world for a long time. You will be eternally missed by all that knew you.

Carol , Nathan, Brianna, and Justin,
It's been a long time, but thought of you and your family still are fresh in my heart. Sunday I drove past the old house, and wondered how you are doing. May you be at peace and know that Kris is in a better place. Our love and prayers headed your way. Love you all, Chris, Melisa, Christine, Sam and Jon Hovey.
