Every once in a while when i come outside, i would see him at the house down the street from me. He would be out playing with a little one and standing beside a dog. I would pass the house for the reason of me going on a run and he would always wave to me and ask me how my day is, ask about the family, and then of course to make sure i tell the family he said hello. I may not have known him very much, but i did know that he was a sweet man. Chris, my family adores you and your family. Y’all have done so much for us and you mean a lot to us. We have your family in our prayers always.
