Tanja, We knew Chris for a short 10 years. He was our neighbor and our friend. It is difficult to comprehend that he is gone. His friendliness and crazy sense of humor leaves a memory of his laughter and smile. He always had a story and a flair for the telling of it. We hope that over time, your sadness and pain will lessen. He would want you to go on with a smile! We wish you peace and hope.

Time stood still for me this morning when I read about Chis in the paper. I remember his never-failing sense of humor, his adventures, and misadventures. I found myself crying and smiling at the same time. To my dear friend Tanja and family, you have our condolences for a guy who lived life to the fullest, made friends wherever he went and kept them laughing. Lynn and Leonard Hollifield
