As I look around my yard, I will always remember the fun we had working together completing projects. Through our many conversations, I became aware about how much he cared about other people. He loved his family and he was so proud to be an Eagle Scout. I will miss Christopher very much!

    I dont know you or your son and I’m sorry for that. I feel your pain. I lost my daughter in 2009. If there is anything I can do for you or any family members, please do not hesitate. I
    My condolences to you and your family for losing such a beautiful soul. It will never be easy I wish I could say different. I hope you can find the courage to take on another day. Do it for him? You will have many “what its” and “Whys” Unfortunatly No one will answer. I am sorry for that. I can only pray that you will continue your journey without him, here with me on earth. May god bless you and keep you safe until you see him again. And I know you will just remember that. It is the only thing I have that keeps me going is that one day we will be together again. God bless you and your family.
