    Oh my gosh I have never been in so much pain in my life. My husband of 11 years is gone and I truly miss my best friend…

    Truly the funniest, most caring and happiest soul. Still can’t believe that he’s gone. I love you uncle Chris, thank you for always putting a smile on my face. We’ll meet again one day.

    I can’t believe how much I miss you already! You were literally the best father any daughter could ask for!! I love you and miss you like crazy!

    Chris was a great brother-in-law and an even better human. He was pure joy to all who met him. To know Chris, was to love Chris. You made me feel small, Chris, and the void you left is huge!

    I can only say that I am so sorry for your loss Dawn. I first met Chris while I was traveling back and forth around the country from Little Rock airport. He was the best TSA guy and had the greatest smile. When I found out y’all were getting married I knew it was a perfect match! It hardly seems true that Chris has gone. Chris was a great person and super funny. He had a heart of gold and made you so very happy. You were a perfect fun couple. I love you both and I will miss him. I am always here for you and your amazing grandson Jordyn.
    A payer for you from the Bible; Loving God, my heart is torn into a thousand pieces. My husband was everything to me, and now he is no more. The bible says that you are a husband to widows. I choose to see you as my husband from today onwards. Heal my heart from all this pain that I am carrying. Please give me the strength to endure all that I am going through and help me to fight the good fight of faith. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.Love you sis ❤️
