I am so sorry for your loss. I spent quite some time talking with Chris. I've known him for 20+ years. He was a good man, and loved his family. I know sometimes it may not have felt that way. I'm praying that you will find peace and feel a calmness I your hearts. I pray for healing. I apologize for not being there today. God knows I wanted to be. The weather did not cooperate. Just know you're all in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless and keep you.
