I've known Chris for only a very short period of time through one of our friends Kasey... But in that very short time he made me feel like i knew him my whole life he was such a great person... He made me laugh all the time... Always kept in touch to see if everything was ok... He was all around an amazing man... Hate that it had to end so soon I will NEVER forget you Chris you'll always be in my heart... RIP Love...
