First John and Pam I'm so sorry for this loss... I'm here for you guys... anything.
Chris was my person... I wouldn't have made it through those horrid teenage high-school years without him. He was my ride or die. Even tho we missed out on some yrs together, getting to see him again recently was like we never missed a beat. I will miss him dearly... I love you Chris.
