So sorry to hear about the passing of Chris. I was proud of him for his military service. He was one of my cousins and I enjoyed catching up with him in recent years.

So sorry to hear about your loss. Please accept my most sincere condolences. Chris was one of my favorite cousins. I looked up to Chris during my childhood. Especially when we went swimming in creeks and Shawnee Park.
