Oh Pooder you touched so many lives with your spirit, spunk, and overwhelming kindness and big heart! Fun silly little gifts like a Swirl Pop, a Save the Boobies bracelet, even a bottle of vitamins to brighten my day. Your sense of humor was the BEST! All those times we were laughing so hard wiping tears from our faces and we would finally pull it together and look at each other and start all over again! Your laugh was contagious and could pull me out of any kind of funk! You my friend were one of a kind and until we meet again, I will always be your Bitchous! Mark, Flo and the rest of the family, my heart aches for you all. My deepest sympathy goes out to each and everyone of you. Peace be with you.

I didn't know Chris personally, but from what I did know he sounded like a wonderful and giving person. I am so sorry for your loss.

"I've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason, bringing something we must learn. And we are led to those who help us most to grow, if we let them and we help them in return. Well, I don't know if I believe that's true, but I know I'm who I am today because I knew you... You'll be with me like a handprint on my heart...whatever way our stories end, I know you have re-written mine By being my friend." May God bless and hold all us who were privileged to know and love Chris gently in his hands as we mourn our loss and celebrate his life.

My deepest sympathy goes out to the loved ones & family of Cristopher. He was always such a bright soul. I’ve worked at the tanning salon he came in at for 5 years, All the girls loved him dearly. He was especially known for being the “lottery guy” he always made our days a little brighter by leaving a lottery ticket on the bed EVERY SINGLE VIST. Such a wonderful man and we will miss his weekly visits. Sending our thoughts and prayers through this difficult time.

We are all blessed and much richer for having Chris in our lives. He will be missed and is loved by many more than he would ever imagine. He now rests in peace and we all will cherish his memory and let it live on in our lives and hearts. We are able to smile simply because Chris has lived and we were able to share time with him!
