“I knew Chris about 7 years back through my girlfriend Lisa. He loved playing his records and showing off his records. He also loved his cats,and his pepperoni pizza. I will miss the times HR he took us out to eat and our trips to krogers. Fly high friend you are at peace now. We will meet again someday.”

“Chris was like a little brother, even though we were not blood related. I’ve known him about 20 years, and we were roommates for a long time. We enjoyed listening to music for hours, and watching The Price is Right at night that he recorded daily. He was amazing when it came to fixing electronics and appliances! Chris and I have had some adventures! He would come to my house every Thanksgiving and we would watch the Macy’s Parade, then his half sister would come pick him up to enjoy dinner at her house. He loved his cats very much and he got to see them one last time before he passed. I will miss him very much!”
