My name is Michael Kennedy. I can say proudly that Chris was my BEST friend as a kid. I haven't seen him in long time but thought of him in the last week, not knowing of his passing. It breaks my heart to know he is gone. I will ALWAYS love him as my friend that I met in cub scouts. I spent countless days playing at his house or mine, enjoying every minute. I hope this message finds his mom Lynn, who I wish I could give a huge hug and tell her I love her and how very sorry I am for her loss. I love you Chris, miss you bud...
