Our deepest condolences to Rebecca and Kris's family. Kris was a good friend, one of those who was always a joy was to talk to. Personally, I will miss the many hours of conversations that we had over the years. We would talk about the future of the industry he loved so much, with many opinions and hopes and dreams for the good of the people of Michigan. Kris was always the best of friends. Once you were his friend, you were a friend for life, which is a rare thing these days. I always got a kick out of Kris, who was known to many by the name "Steve". We will miss him, but his legacy will always be there for all who remember. New World Seeds will go on and on, which will mean Kris will always be here in our hearts.
