To the Mabe Family,

I hope that it will bring you some comfort to see the outpouring of love that has been shown especially by Chris's classmates, teammates, and friends. This kid made an impact on the lives of so many teens in LaGrange. He was not in a clique, he just loved everybody! He was nice to everyone he came in contact with. Although his time here was short, his job on this earth was well done. Have heard so many cute stories about the different ways he made the kids laugh. Praying for you every day. Thank you for the memories that sweet boy left us with. We will see him again. He loved baseball and he is on God's team now. (Probably up there complaining about the bats in Heaven!!) Constant prayers going up for you!
