I have so many memories with Christopher. But one of my favorite ones is when it was prom night for me and I didn't want to go to prom but I had a dress so his dad, him, and I all went out to a park and took pictures and even though I was in heels we still ran and raced to the car after pictures and when we were taking pictures he always had to make sure that even if I wanted to take one alone he had to be by my side. He was always there to make me smile on my down days and keep my smile on my good days. I miss you bunches buddy!! I love you and you will always be in my heart!!!
