Blessings and love to all of Chris Al-Aswad's family.
Thanks to Chris for all the support and the respect given toward the thoughts and ideas of others. You leave the legacy of a truly genuine person, whether it was on twitter or over the telephone. I am sorry you could not stay longer to share more of yourself. I am humbled by our lose of you, and chastened by your model of consistency, hard focused-work and genuine kindness toward others.
Thinking about how much Chris touched people after reading all the comments here posted, and noticing how many of those where people he met online, leaves me thinking about a good many things with respect to the way we live and share our lives. (Wondering about my decision to spend much less time online.) At the end of the day, the death of a cherished person never quenches love.
Thanks for sharing Chris.
Rest in peace; my hope is that you now walk in light.
