    Chris and I became friends at Lanier. He was always such a happy person, and had a personality that made you want to be around him. Remember riding to parties in the back of his blue "low-rider" truck in high school. He will be missed... my condolences to his family and other friends.

    My prayers go out to your family. I was so blessed to grow up and have so many wonderful memories of Chris...I saw him just a few years ago and are kids played together. We laughed about old times and how we never imagined being at a children's park watching our kids play. So glad I had that time with him. In 25 years there wasn't a bday we didn't talk ..Me,then Chris then Karyn 3 days in a row..it wont ever be the same with out that call from him on the 17th and my call to him on the 18th..something so little that always ment so much! With love and forever in my heart..Bethany

    It was wonderful to visit with Chris here in Wilmington. I enjoyed meeting up with him for lunch periodically since we had known each other since high school. Chris was always game for any plan to have fun! I will miss his smile and giggle.
