It has been a long time since our days at SJA and ELMJACK football. You and your family were friends to me and I will always be grateful. The world will be a less colorful place now that you have moved on.

May the wind be at your back and the sun shine upon you as you transit the bridge to life everlasting!!

Tania, there are no words to tell you how sorry I am to hear about Chris. Although we didn't know each other well, he was always so friendly whenever I bumped into him. I met him through Ashley when I lived with her in Croton, and I immediately liked him. He was a warm, caring person. My sincere sympathy to you, Christopher, and the whole McVeety family.
