My thoughts and prayers for the Overholser family and all of Chris's friends. I just met him about six months ago but it feels like I've known him forever. He was such a kind person with a heart of gold, a contagious smile and an optimistic attitude. I would meet with him and our friend Vicki every Tuesday for lunch to talk about our favorite TV shows. Our times together were some of the best moments and helped get me through some of the most stressful days. I just wish I could have been able to spend even more time with him. He will never be forgotten, thank you for sharing Chris with us.

Christopher was a wonderfully genuine young man who will be greatly missed. I count it a blessing that his path crossed mine. When I think of him only good thoughts come to mind.

Much love to the Overholser family - my thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time. I would also like to THANK YOU for bringing such a wonderful person into the world. He touched so many people, made such a difference in so many lives and was a truly good friend to everyone, like myself, who was honored enough to have called him "friend." I am heartbroken at the loss of a friend I've known almost half of my life but feel lucky to have had the chance to know him and feel I am all the better for it. Much love and peace to all of you now and forever. I will miss him for as long as I live.
