Norm, My deepest sympathy for your loss and hope you are well.

I only met Chris once when he was a child, but through letters from Jody after I moved away, I heard about how sweet and kind he was. Then I didn't hear from Jody. I moved back to the area this year and only recently found out that she had passed. My condolences to the family for both losses.

I am absolutely shocked and gutted over this loss. Chris was such a kind, gentle, funny, likeable and generally great guy. I will always treasure the time we spent together (way back in the 90's!) and the happy memories of spending time with his family. Mister Christopher, you will always be my junior semi-formal date, a musical inspiration and a kindred spirit. Rest in peace my friend, I know you're embracing your mom, who I will always think of as "Mummy" and whose absence Im still grieving. You are with Mom now, and she is with you. God bless you 💜
