Chris was a best friend in high school. We hunted and partied together. Lot of great memories. We had just recently hooked back up on FB and were always planning to get together for a beer and reminisce- I’m sorry that didn’t happen. Good bye my Friend - until we meet again ....

I have know Chris most all of my life. We went to junior prom together and shared many memories together. He was the first boyfriend I ever had and the first boy I ever kissed. We walked along side each other at our high school graduation. He was a good friend and always very easy to talk to. I will miss him very much but will know in my heart that he is with his grandparents and Jesus. Good bye my friend.
