As the tears fall down my face,
Without you I am out of place.
I try to keep the hurt inside,
But it is too hard to hide.

I cannot breathe the air,
You know how much I care.
I miss your hand holding mine,
How it could stop a moment in time.

Your gorgeous brown eyes when looking at me,
I miss how my tickles made you scream “Honey!”.
Christopher, I miss you so much,
Especially your gentle little touch.

Just doing some searching on facebook, I found some shocking news. I have not seen Krys since shortly after the 10 year reunion. I know he was always full of love and joy. He smiled at everyone. I am truly lucky to have known him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family this holiday season and everyday that follows.

Oh my how hard this has in my mind the last weeks, days and then minutes before you left us. You were so strong, never complained while we watched you hide the suffering you were going through. Yes, I could see it all through your eyes, BUT you, the amazing man that you are, held your head up, lived life until your body could no longer live, and gave me a Faith I have never known. Christopher: you are such a loving, giving, intelegent, person that is greatly missed by sooo many, thank you for loving me unconditionally and always being here for me for anything life threw my way!! I now you are watching over us and that we will meet again one day, but please know that I really miss your voice, your hugs, your laugh and just YOU! I LOVE YOU MY NEPHEW!!

This afternoon our granddaughter, Nicole Mitchell and I visited with the bereavement counselor at the Hospice Residence for the 1st time since Chris went home to be with GOD and the Angels. It was hard for me but with Nicole with me I was able to do it!! I walked the labyrith (that I did every day that he was there) and a young deer almost came up to me to see what I was doing. I didn't feel the pain that I feared and I met with Chris's Hospice nurse, Kim Cooper, by chance before we talked with Linda Gregson ( a loving being). The experience was bitter-sweet but much needed. I'm still working on the pain of losing the physical self of my youngest child and I know that Tine will help. This 1st year Anniversary of every memory, event, holiday or whatever is the hardest to cope with. Although I feel his presence in spirit form, I miss his physical being in our existence. This is the most challenging lesson I've ever had in my lifetime but I thank GOD for allowing me to be his mother for those too few years with us!! Until we meet again, I will survive..Sing the song Chris!!

I loved seeing his smile when he came in to church then he would make the comment of "Pittsburg Squeelers,they are under the Ten Commandments thou shall not steal" then he would walk off and smile/laugh. No matter what was going on he had a smile on his face and the love for others,the positive attitude that he had made me wanna be just like that because even through the sickness he had it and kept pushing until it was hard to fight back.

Oh, what to say about my dear friend Chris? Or better yet, what isn't there NICE to say about such a warm, caring, giving, funny, hard working, loving, interesting, great listener, strong willed, and wonderful friend?!?

I feel totally blessed to have known Chris for about 5 years working together @ CCBDD :) He always placed a smile on my heart that I shall treasure always and forever ...

May the Lord continue to offer you his loving care always, Chris. Thank you Lord for placing someone as "Special" as Chris in my path of life ...

Chris' insight and humor are deeply missed. He taught us all what it means to handle life's challenges with both spirit and grace.
