I'm sorry your time on this earth was short, but we are better off knowing you for that time. We Love you & Will Never Forget you.

I try to stop by and see you often just to fill you in but its not the same. I miss us going to the store together or even just hanging at the house. I miss you
Thank you Kesha and Tasha (loretta's girls)for keeping the book online...reading all of the comments makes me smile knowing how much chris was loved by so many. Jesus really used him as a vessel of love with so many people. thank you both for allowing his legacy to live on longer :-)
Chris you are truly missed. Although it still saddens me, I feel like I can still talk to you about everything. You always managed to make me smile when I didn't even want to. I know your with God and resting well. You have touched sooo many lives and I'm confident your still our Angel. I love you Chris and I will never forget you. Til we meet again my friend,and I know you would say "Huh Bra" ... Love Keishon
God has taken an Angel from us, who has help so many with a smile. You are loved Chris and you will never be forgotten.
Black my dude my friend my dog my homie you know I always took your advice on things that you said you just didn't know it I thank you for being hard on me when it comes to my daughters and also helping me with everyday life funny as all out doors the brother I was I would have had also a friend to my whole family this will be a hard job to do now but your are home with our father and your are in no pain no more I see again when it's my time much love always. Black!!!!!!
To my big homie , miss those morning Conversation , You was the closest thing to a big bro I ever had , thanks for all the advice you have given me ,I'll catch up wit u later!
All the memories & the fun times you and I created together I will forever keep. I'm really going to miss when I go by Charlotte house and on a Friday night not do our usual and go out and eat ! I'm going to miss our Mardi Gras days and much more. I hate that this happened but I know you are resting in PARADISE !! I was just stopping by to let you know that you may be gone but you are not forgotten ! I Love You so much! See you later "Black"
It's been almost 5 weeks since you've left here and everyday that passes reality sinks in a little bit more, that you are not coming back. I can honestly say that I am both honored and blessed to have had your kindness and compassion grace my life and that of my family. Sometimes in life we never get the opportunity to say what someone really means to us. Luckily, this never happened with us. You knew Chris that you were my bestfriend, confidant, comforter, protector and most importantly part of my heart. Where do I go to find another like you? Simply, put there never have or will be another like you Chris in this lifetime for me. I will never forget you and all that you've given me. How can I with all the memories we've created together. I LOVE YOU CHRISSY !!! It really is hard to say goodbye ... so instead i'll just say SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE BABY !
Black today is the last day this guest book will be online but, you will forever be in our hearts and mind. You are gone but you will NEVER be forgotten. Life will never be the same without you we love and miss you so much. Nae say everything she do is in your Honor, Black continue to watch over and protect our family!! Taka Waka miss you!!!Rest on My Love!!!!
Missing you still. I miss those calls - "brah, picture this" you would often say to me. Especially when you wanted to share something with me. Love you always. You was definitely an important part if many lives. Live on in Christ.

Christopher was more than just a friend; he was an amazing and astonishing person. He was always so kind,thoughtful,selfless and considerate to everyone that was blessed to be in his presence. Christopher's memory is profound and will always remain unfathomable within my heart.
Wilma Bush Sargent
My prayers and thoughts are with in your hour of sorrow. May God continue to watch over you and your family.
As a St. Augustine Band Booster Club mom for over eight years, I had the distinct opportunity to come in contact with many, many, wonderful "Purple Knights" and Chris was one of them. My sons-Doug c/o 92 and Ramaan c/o 96 shared the spotlight with him. I also had the opportunity to attend the services that celebrated Chris's life, it was a wonderful testimony of him and of you, Mr. & Mrs. Sargent, as parents. I will pray for your continued strength and peace for Chris. Go the Mighty Purple Knight!
i love you always you"ll be in my heart
I had not seen Chris since highschool we had lots of fun back then. I was saddened to hear of his passing he was so vibrant and funny and he will be missed greatly. My prayers are with his family during this very difficult time.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May God's love, His promise of eternal life in Christ, strengthen you and keep you in perfect peace. Please know that we love you too.

Chris was one of my best students, and a true purple knight.
My condolences to the family.
Sarge, you were one of the funniest and sincere people I knew. You loved The Marching 100 and 2600 A.P. Tureaud and you was not afraid to show it! You were my band-mate, friend, and brother. PURPLE FOREVER, rest in peace my brother, Rahmaan "Rock" Nance c/o 92, Tricia, Rahshaan c/o 2016, and Jaraad c/o 2021

Sometimes when I walk alone I wish the road will end soon, but when my friends come along, I often hope and wish the road will Never end. You will be missed!
Heidi, May GOD give you and your family the strength you need at this time. Chris, I know that you are with GOD, THE ANGELS and my brother Fernand R Jackson, Jr, still clowning as we used to do when we were children on Peoples St or Benefit St. We love you but GOD loves you best. REST IN PEACE my friend!
We spent a lot of fun days and nights when we were younger and having fun. As we got older, you became a person I can really count on. I'm going to miss our conversations and your sense of humor. The won't seem as fun without you. Rest in peace my friend.
Chris was a warm hearted person that would would do anything, for you if he could. My condolences to the family and may The Lord comfort during your time of sorrow.
Our thoughts, prayers, and heartfelt condolences are with the Sargent Family at this difficult time. Words cannot express the sorrow we feel. We will never forget Chris.

I am deeply saddened by your loss my friend/classmate for life. You and your family have been in my thoughts and prayers since I received the news. You were like a brother to me “Suga Bear” (I won't tell nobody about the name :)), my brother it's been a minute since we shared a moment like the days of old. I remember you, mark and I use to pile up in mark's Chevrolet Cavalier with the big chrome rims and just ride until we got tired many nights. I've been to your home and you to mine having broke bread many times as brothers. It's ironic that I haven't been to a St. Aug Homecoming in years but this October 2012 my dad was fatally ill in the hospital, I was in town and it just happened to be homecoming. If it wasn't for Carl Morris & Adrian Joseph I wouldn't have left the hospital. It provided me an opportunity to get a breather to clear my head and get to see some of my fellow classmates who I haven't seen in a long time. You were one of them on the way up the steps we looked at one another and man we exchanged brotherly affection. It was as if we hadn't missed a beat my friend and I mentioned my dad and you gave me your prayers and told me to keep my head up. We reminisced on many things shared over the years and it was all smiles. It felt like we were back in the hallways of the St. Aug once again. I'm so elated to have gone to the game because it allowed me an opportunity to play with you in the alumni simpler, as we hooked up for the last time together on this side of earth as alumni members of the Marching 100. :D So rest in peace my friend and I shall see you soon enough!! Prayers go out to the Sargent Family, and may God continue to keep you strong thru your time of grieving. Rest knowing that Chris was embraced by MANY, a true purple knight brother who will never be forgotten.
Rest in Peace.....God needed another angel....

Chris "Black" you were always a joy to be around. You brought a lot of happiness to my family and were always there in my family's time of need. The great amount of joy you brought to my family is a blessing we all will always hold dear. The great sadness caused by losing you is a tremendous hole that cannot be filled. I pray you are in God's comforting presence and for the strength, comfort, and faith your many loved ones will need to cope with such a great loss.
"Black," Thank you for the laughter. Your comedic personality and infectious laugh will be greatly missed. It was a pleasure to know and work with you.
Our hearts and prayers are with the family. May God bless and comfort you.

I No for sure you are in a much better place "HEAVEN".Just to let the people that didnt know Chris he was one of the realist dudes i know.I have alot of good memories of Chris but one that stuck with me the most was in 1993 the field show "If i fall in love Acapella version by Shai .

I remember when my momma told me the news and I couldn't believe what she was saying. Chris I am gonna remember you making me laugh. You will live on in our memories. I love you Chris and the rest of my family grieving because a piece of us is gone.
Dear Wilma, Uncle John and Heidi I regret that I will not be there because I know whenever I called on Chris he was there for me. I am deeply sorrowful for his untimely death. I pray that the God of Peace and love keep your hearts and comfort you all through this season.
Heidi and family, may you be comforted by the love of God and many precious memories. 'We will understand it better by and by...'
You were an older brother to me and you didn't even know it. You looked out for me when you didn't have to. Life won't be the same without you. Rest peacefully big dog. I know we will meet again...
I was honored to have met Chris in Houston, TX.. Chris, your cooking skills were placed above all, that my girlfriends and I had ever experienced. My prayers are being submitted for all family members. My doors are open for the Sargents in Houston, TX.. Chris, I have the seasonings that we bought and I use, as you instructed. Will think of you a lot. Will surely see you later.
It's been years since I've seen my man, Sargent, as he was called at St. Aug...still, getting word of his passing dealt a heavy blow. To the Sargent family, the hearts of Chris' St. Aug family goes out to you. Chris was embraced by the entire school in a way that few were...his peers as well as the faculty and staff all loved brother Sargent equally. Some of my favorite memories from high school involve catching the same two buses home with Chris. We used to laugh the entire way home. Although you're gone, brother, everyone who knew you will cherish those types of memories, because if you spent any time around Chris, it was probably spent smiling and laughing. You'll never be forgotten, brother. Purple forever.
Larry Napoleon, St. Augustine High School class of 1994.
