My deepest sympathy to all who loved Christopher. He was a ball of energy, a bright light and a quick wit. He had a laugh ready and waiting. He was a hard worker who played harder, and he loved Owen fiercely. He will be so missed. May Lamar and Owen find comfort in their memories. My heart aches for the world's loss and for Heaven's gain. It was too soon. May he find the perfect fishing spot. Rest in peace, Chris.
