    Chris was one of a kind. He could always get people to laugh & had words of wisdom at just the right time,. We will so miss our breakfast meetings with him at Alley Cat's since we looked forward to the "free entertainment" he provided with his dry humor. As with all of us from Pender Academy, we were more like family than just friends. Our thoughts & prayers remain with each of you. He certainly will not be forgotten! John & Lisa Herring
