While we grieve your sudden loss, please know that we will think of you always. You will live on through each of us kids in different ways! I will carry you in my heart. While we did not speak as often as I would of in the more recent years we always picked up right where we left off. You always showed so much love to all of us and always gave us such thoughtful gifts.

Some of my most fond memories with you are when we lived in Walden and the closeness that we developed over that time. Another is right before I left for the Army and you and Myra took me to Six Flags for the day. That was a day of true happiness for all of us! I cannot believe it was 15 years ago already!

I will truly miss you for ever and know that you will be with me.

You may no longer be here but I will still be chatting with you! Rest greatly in peace, until we meet again! I will always love you.

Love always,

Christopher (or as you always called me your “Baby” or “Bubbaloe”)

P.S. please look over Alice, she really needs to feel your love she really misses you and is looking for answers in her way.
