Christopher “Chris” Erik Arana was born on February 26th, 1998 in Houston, Texas to Maria Martha Lung. Being Maria Martha’s only son, he was surrounded by his family’s love and was a playful happy child that loved to make everyone around him smile and laugh. Even though Christopher, or as his mother would call him “Crispin”, was an only child, he was raised by his mother and grandmother “Aita”, and was taught to be respectful to his elders and to others.

As a child, he would accompany his grandmother to her native country Nicaragua where he learned the culture and the Spanish language. From a young age, Christopher always had a passion for animals, as he was initially raised with his beloved dog ‘Stitch’ and also several other cats in his mother’s household, and would later go on to rescue and adopt his two precious cats Shadow and Ghost. As he grew older, he maintained an interest in cars, art, action movies, and video games as he kept close ties to his family above all. He attended Aragon Middle School and Langham Creek High School.

In high school, Christopher was known to be the life of the party and always managed to lighten the mood for his friends and family alike. Following high school, Christopher worked several jobs such as O’Reilly where he was happy to learn more about one of his passions, then working for Fossil until his passing, where he proved his respectful and affectionate character with his coworkers, consistent work ethic, and desire for success while maintaining his fun after-hours personality as he grew more interested in car culture.

Christopher leaves behind his strong mother, Maria Martha Lung, His beloved cats, Shadow and Ghost. His grandparents: Francisca Leticia Lopez and Spicer Fulmer Lung in addition to his uncles, Spicer Alberto Lung and Spicer Tomas Lung. His cousins; Ricardo Jesus Lung, Alexandra Michelle Lung, and Rebecca Gisselle Lung as well as many other close relatives, friends, and acquaintances. The Lung Family would like to express their sincere gratitude for the prayers, love, and support they’ve received from the community, friends, and family alike during this difficult time.

Christopher “Chris” Erik Arana nació el 26 de Febrero de 1998 en Houston, Texas de Maria Martha Lung. Siendo el único hijo de Maria Martha, estaba rodeado por el amor de su familia y era un niño feliz y juguetón al que le encantaba hacer sonreír y reír a todos a su alrededor. Aunque Christopher, o como su madre lo llamaría "Crispín", era hijo único, fue criado por su madre y su abuela "Aita", y le enseñaron a ser respetuoso con sus mayores y con los demás.

De niño, acompañaba a su abuela, Leticia Lopez, a su país natal Nicaragua, donde aprendió la cultura y el idioma español. Desde muy joven, Christopher siempre tuvo una pasión por los animales, ya que inicialmente fue criado con su amado perro 'Stitch' y también varios otros gatos en la casa de su madre, y luego rescataría y adoptaría a sus dos preciosos gatos Shadow y Ghost. A medida que crecía, mantuvo un interés en los automóviles, el arte, las películas de acción y los videojuegos, sobre todo mantuvo sus relaciones con su familia. Asistió a Aragon Middle School y Langham Creek High School.

En la escuela secundaria, se sabía que Christopher era el alma de la fiesta y siempre se las arreglaba para animar a sus amigos y familiares por igual. Después de la escuela secundaria, Christopher trabajó en varios trabajos como O'Reilly, dónde estaba feliz de aprender más sobre una de sus pasiones, y despues empezo a trabajar en Fossil hasta el presente, donde demostró su carácter respetuoso y afectuoso con sus compañeros de trabajo, ética de trabajo constante, y deseo de éxito mientras mantenía su personalidad divertida después de las horas de trabajo a medida que se interesaba más en la cultura del automóvil.

Sus abuelos: Francisca Leticia López y Spicer Fulmer Lung además de sus tíos, Spicer Alberto Lung y Spicer Tomas Lung.

Christopher, The Lord blessed us with your presence and life for twenty two years, and we couldn’t have asked for better memories and time shared.
I have so many fond memories with you Chris, like how you’d hold my hand when I was little to make sure I didn’t get lost at Bear Creek Park, or so many small moments where we’d talk after school to catch up, and you’d make sure to crack some jokes to make me smile.
You never failed to make me smile and laugh any chance you tried because you always carried a lightness in your heart, a gift for people and a dedicated love for your family and friends.
I am deeply honored to have known you my entire life and to have been graced with your laugher, your wisdom, your smile and your love. Even though I and so many others, especially your mom, my ‘Yaya’ will miss you so very much, I know that The Lord will ensure you are safe and happy.
Rest assured that I will be there to protect, love as I always have and ensure your mom is happy, as I know you loved her so very much and would want her to be surrounded by the people who love her the most just like you did.
I love you so much Chris. my cousin - my brother, and I promise you that everything and anything I do for the rest of my life, I’ll do it for you.

My son, you brought so much joy to my life. Even though I miss you terribly I give thanks to our God for letting me have you almost 23 years. You were my purpose in life to better myself, I know you are rejoicing in the arms of our Lord and it is he who is taking care of you now. You were a very loved child you had a kind heart and you showed that with many actions by caring for your family, friends and your love of animals. You had a gift to make people laugh, your witty personality allowed to have many friends and you always had a joke. You enjoyed watching action movies, enjoyed all kinds of food; you were not a picky child at all and passion for cars. Rest assure that I will watch over your precious cats Ghost and Shadow, love them and take care of them as they are an extension of you. I will always love you and remember you and live with the hope that we will see each other again. I love you very much Crispin.

Mi niño grande. Dejaste los brazos de tu mamá vacíos. Más comprendo que llegó tu tiempo que DIOS te ha llamado para estar a su lado. Así Él lo quiso. Se por Fé que estas en un lugar lleno de luz, donde existe paz, donde no hay maldad, donde puedes descansar, se que el cielo es un bello lugar. Nos quedamos con el anhelo que te volvemos a ver. Te extrañaremos, el niño de los ojos vivarachos, traviesos, pícaros que querías robarte al mundo con esa carita de ángel. Te convertiste en un joven muy amado por todos los que te conocieron. Pero muy joven partiste y has dejado un inmenso vacío en tu mamá (Martha), tu abuelita (aita) y toda la familia y amigos. Se que estas bien, pues creo en un Dios bueno y que estas en sus brazos.
Te contaré una historia de amor : un día Dios decidió darle el regalo más hermoso (uno de sus angelito) a una mujer que tiene un corazón nobles, generosa, amorosa, buena hija, cuidadora de sus hermanos y amante de los animales. Dijo así Dios : te envió este ángel para que sea tu alegría y tus tristeza, que sea el motivo de tu vivir, pero..... Había un pero; será por un tiempo naciste hace casi 23 años, parece mucho tiempo, pero realmente fué muy corto, un abrir y cerrar de ojo. Había muchos planes para tu vida. Eras todavía un niño grande. Allí donde estás cuida de tu mamá, has la sentir que estás a su lado.
Descansa en Paz CHRISTOPHER
Te extrañaremos
Tu tia
Reyna
