My deepest condolences to everyone who knew and loved Chris. I sincerely appreciate your loss. Chris was an amazing person! He was a delight as a human being and a very talented artist to boot!

I am very grateful I got the chance to meet Chris during his much too brief time here.
I wish he had the chance to share his light with more people!

I know he will live on in our hearts through his influence.

Warmest regards and thoughts.

I just found out today that Chris passed. He texted me in April and asked me when I was coming to see him. I told him I would call him the next week and we would set something up. I didn’t. Life got busy. I regret that I didn’t see him and I regret that over the last year life has been so busy that I didn’t call or text or just pop by to see him like I usually did. I miss him. If I didn’t see him for six months and then popped by to see him or called him it was like no time had passed at all. He was always welcoming and happy to see me no matter what. We just took up where we left off. We talked about everything. I could tell him anything and he could tell me anything and there was never any judgement. It felt like he had been in my life always -like we were brother and sister….gossiping, sharing a private joke, chatting about our lives, sharing happy stories and sad stories, always being honest with each other even when honesty is not necessarily what we wanted to hear. I wish I had seen him before his surgery….after his surgery…..I hope he knew I loved him and that every moment I spent with him, every text he sent me and every time we spoke brightened my day. I am beside myself with pain that I was not there for him during his final days. I loved him. I love him. I miss you Chris. To Don and all of Chris’ family I am so sorry for your loss. He was such a special person. I was blessed to have him in my life. My daughters adored him as well. Our hearts are broken.
