Abril, Christopher Edward
The Guest Book is expired.
22 years old, passed away Friday, March 18, 2011. Injuries from a car accident were too severe. We find peace in knowing Chris had the love of Jesus in his heart. This love was in Chris's strong hugs, rare humility, and limitless generosity. He is watching us from heaven with his easy going smile. Christopher lived a life he wanted; he enjoyed it and made it count through his strong will. In his caring way, Chris would tell us today, "Everything will be fine." There is no one like you, Christopher. My boy. My Mijo. My grandson. My Mijito. My brother. My Son. My kid. My tío. My Cha Cha. My cousin. My Profé. My Peekaper. My friend. My Chris. Our love for you continues to grow and will be with us always. Chris, a graduate of Brophy College Preparatory, was a senior at Arizona State University studying to be a veterinarian. If anyone wishes to make a donation in Chris's name, his family asks it is given to the Arizona Humane Society. Services are Friday, March 25, 2011 at 4:00pm, Our Lady of Fatima, 1418 S. 17th Avenue, Phoenix, AZ, 85007.
