Chris and I lived next-door to each other. He was in need of a car and I sold him mine... a blue Monte Carlo Chevrolet because he did not have the money. I let him make a payment of $100 a month and it was $1000 and every single month he would pay that hundred dollars right down to the penny!! He was so excited when he paid it off and I remember when I use to go next-door to their house and his mom would do crafts with us. Chris I know you’re in a happier place and you are now with Jesus, with your mother and grandmother!! Love you my friend!!! Rest In Peace!!
