I met Chris in high school. I just wanted to mention that Chris was my first date. He took me to the Strand theater and we watched the Beverly Hillbillies movie. We had so much fun. He was so kind and such a gentleman. I send my deepest condolences to his family. God Bless.

We deeply regret that we are not able to attend the Memorial Service. However, we want you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. In times like these we need a Savior, in times like these we need a Friend. May our Lord and Savior wrap you in His loving arms of comfort and compassion. May God’s grace be a source of strength to you and your family. May the Love of God sustain you and may you feel His peace, which surpasses all understanding. “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in Him will I trust.” Psalm 91:1-2
