I considered Chris to be one of my best friends but come to think about it, I think he had a way of making everyone feel like they were best friends with him. Chris had a way of making people feel comfortable and valued when they were around him.

We all shared a lot of really good times together with Chris. I had the privilege of working with him, training with him, and eating a lot of sushi together with him:)

Chris will be deeply missed and will always be loved. I can honestly say that I’ll never forget the times we shared. He holds a special place in our hearts.

Until we meet again my friend!
