A day does not go by since Chris passed that he is not thought about or remembered. He was truely a close and dear friend in every respect. I have his name in my Bible, and will value forever our great friendship.

It is so difficult to say good bye to a dear friend. You will always bring a smile to my heart when I think of you. Thanks for sharing such true friendship with me and bringing me into the circle of love that Nazeret shared with you. God blessed you two even if it was for such a short time. Hoping you are at peace. You deserve the best for being the terrific man you were. God will keep his arms around Nazeret during this time. We all will miss you a lot!

I was sorry to hear of Chris' passing. I worked with Chris and he was always dressed professionally and a genuinely nice person. He will be missed.

A Reminiscence

YES, thou art gone! and never more
Thy sunny smile shall gladden me;
But I may pass the old church door,
And pace the floor that covers thee.

May stand upon the cold, damp stone,
And think that, frozen, lies below
The lightest heart that I have known,
The kindest I shall ever know.

Yet, though I cannot see thee more,
'Tis still a comfort to have seen;
And though thy transient life is o'er,
'Tis sweet to think that thou hast been;

To think a soul so near divine,
Within a form so angel fair,
United to a heart like thine,
Has gladdened once our humble sphere.

My heartfelt sympathy to Chris' wife, Narareth,all his children, his sister, Camille and brothers Dann & Darryl and their families. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to visit Chris during his very last days even though it hurt me to see him in such pain. However, our merciful and loving God knows best and has taken him home to be reunited with his parents and to take his place that Jesus said is prepared for all of us in God's mansion.
May he rest in peace.
Diane, Jeremy and the entire Thomas family in Toronto, Canada

My thoughts and prayers go out to Chris' family. I have known Chris for probably the last 6 years through a working relationship between Icard Merrill and Florida Records/Iron Mountain. He was such a wonderful man, so full of vigor and life. His smile and laugh were infectious and he will be greatly missed. I hope to see you in the new system Chris where we don't have to worry about sickness or pain. May God lift up his family in this time of need.
